> Export planning for natural ingredients companies
Through training and individual guidance, we guide companies in developing their own Export Marketing Plan and Export Strategy. Based on a thorough company audit, we develop an action plan together. As a company you receive tailored trainings to improve production processes, product development, export compliance, human resource management and/or supply chain management.
> Export marketing for support organisations
For support organisations specifically, we develop export marketing capacities. We provide trainings and workshops on how to identify the right product for the right market, with the right marketing mix. We also pay attention to create solid partnerships. This increases competitiveness, and it allows companies to better develop their products and services.

We also work in other key trade fairs in the natural ingredient sector, including In-Cosmetics, Food & Health Ingredients Europe and Vitafoods. During these international events, we offer study tours, workshops and matchmaking services.
