TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam will spend four days in Panama in hopes of promoting Florida orange juice and berries to the country’s officials and retailers.

In a news release, Putnam’s office said he planned to leave Sunday. He will be joined by Florida growers and the director of PortMiami.

The group will be briefed about the expansion of the Panama Canal, meet with Panamanian officials and promote Florida products to the country’s retailers. He will also meet with the U.S. ambassador and embassy officials.

This is Commissioner Putnam’s first trip abroad since taking office in 2011.
