Following increased demand from individual agro- entrepreneurs running small and medium-sized farms in the country for another training on how they can access international markets for more revenues, Farmbiz Africa is hereby inviting interested individuals for a one-day training workshop on how to export their fresh produce.
The workshop which will take place on 29th November this year at FarmBiz Africa offices at New Kitisuru, Nairobi is targeting 30-60 growers among other payers in the sector. This will be the second training on the export subject and the third one in overall with the aim of passing vital information smallholder farmers in their enterprises.
The training will feature trade experts, industry association, market researchers and exporters from Kenya Trade Network Agency (KenTrade), Fresh Produce Consortium of Kenya (FPC Kenya), Research Tree Africa and Farmbiz Africa.
It is our hope that after the training farmers will know how to locate export market opportunities, understand the export process, know how to navigate the major export documents required by governments, transporters, and banks, understand payment options, including letters of credit, understand insurance options, and understand the challenges that need to be resolved during packaging and transport.
To achieve this, we have a well-planned course outline spanning from an overview of export marketing, how to find buyers, legal and trade documentation, how to receive export payments, packaging and transport to linking farmers with prospective exporters.
