As economy becomes more dynamic, interdependent and global, it causes a higher number of enterprises to define andpick an entry strategy to become international. Defining a process of market entry is not easy. It is a strategic process, and the choice of a entry strategy into foreign markets is one of the most relevant decisions for a company. It is relevant because it impacts on its performance and means it being ready to cooperate, to a greater or lesser extent, with global supply chains. On the other hand, the consumer is getting more and more informed and is more concerned with the origin of products and the origin of brands. Companies understand this importance and use the origin as an atribute to value the products and the brands.
