Costa Rica will be Sysco’s the fifth country outside the United States in which it will have a foodservice distribution. The others are Canada, Ireland, Northern Ireland and the Bahamas.

Costa Rica will also be Sysco’s first investment in the Latin America.

Sysco also has subsidiaries that serve customers in more than 90 countries worldwide.

Sysco, the Houston area’s fourth-largest public company based on its 2012 revenue of US$42.38 billion. In December, it announced it is buying its smaller chief rival, Rosemont, Ill.-based US Foods, for US$8.2 billion, including debt.
