Coconut flower sugar – a niche product from Indonesia

The ambitious start-up company KULAU GmbH from Berlin has specialised in importing coconut-based products. The name of the enterprise speaks for itself: in Papua-New Guinea’s creole language Tok-Pisin, “kulau” means “young, green coconut”.

The company exclusively sells sustainable, naturally manufactured fair-trade organic products. In its selection of suppliers, KULAU adheres to the highest standards. Both in regard to product quality, good working conditions and environmentally-friendly cultivation methods at the plantations, the German importer makes high demands on its foreign partners. Professional sourcing is therefore very important to the company when it comes to locating suitable buying markets for its products in tropical countries. This is where the help of the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) came in handy. The agency introduced KULAU to the suitable partner, saving the company a lot of time and money.

Tropical timber from sustainably managed forests

IPD OPENS UP NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERUVIAN TIMBER EXPORTERS ON THE EU MARKET

The tropical rainforest is at risk from overexploitation and fire clearance, and this has brought trading in tropical timber into disrepute. Timber companies from countries like Peru therefore encounter difficulties in exporting their tropical wood products to the EU market. They are supported by the Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the precondition being that their timber is verifiably sourced from legal and sustainable forestry. Maderacre Rio Acre SAC is a company that meets the criteria of the FSC, demonstrating in practice that responsible forest management can help to protect the rainforest.

Exotic resources for new taste sensations

The Frankfurt-based company tropextrakt specialises in importing exotic resources for the food sector. Since its foundation in 2002, the enterprise has established its reputation with the introduction of exotic niche products. tropextrakt supplies the big players of the sector with trend-setting fruit and plant products from tropical countries. The company’s success is due to the on-going search for reliable suppliers of high-quality products that meet the superior requirements of German and European clients. To that end tropextrakt has established a solid network of exporters in various countries, especially in South America, in recent years. The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) has now been able to furnish tropextrakt with another valuable contact by introducing the Frankfurt-based company to a highly eligible partner at the SIAL 2014 trade fair: Frugy from Colombia.

GIZ and IPD collaboration in Nepal bearing fruit

SUSTAINABLE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT THROUGH EXPORT PROMOTION

Within the framework of the “Nepal Trade Integration Strategy” GIZ and the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) are supporting a model project promoting the export of medicinal and aromatic plants. The project shows how specific sectoral support can help establish efficient value creation chains and enable Nepalese firms direct access to the German trade market. The half-time evaluation of the export promotion programme in Nepal showed that in 2016 alone Nepalese producers exported to the EU medicinal plant products worth 1.2 million Euros.

Legal and sustainable tropical timber from Peru

The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) and its partners in Peru support responsibly operating companies in their efforts to export certified timber products to Europe. An essential part of IPD’s work is to create awareness of European quality and sustainability standards in Peru’s private and public sectors. At the same time, the IPD provides German importers with an alternative buying market, which will allow them to optimise their purchasing activities and increase their product variety. In this way, international development cooperation and import promotion go hand in hand.

Organic herbs from Tunisia

HERBIOTECH’S EXPORT BUSINESS PROVIDES WORK FOR A WHOLE VILLAGE

Tunisia is an attractive procurement market for dried herbs. Yet this is a little-known fact for many German importers. Most only know of Tunisia as an important export nation for olive oil. In the Kairouan region, the exporter Herbiotech employs an entire village in the cultivation of organic herbs. The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) supports the Tunisian trader as they introduce their premium-quality products to the EU market.

Organic tea from Colombia

Many high-quality products from developing and emerging countries are in great demand on the German and European markets, but importers face major obstacles when it comes to market introduction. Inadequate knowledge of the market and lack of contacts to European trading partners impede their access to the EU market. The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) helps exporters overcome these obstacles. For the Colombian export company Agrícola Himalaya S.A. the IPD has provided comprehensive advice on marketing their high-quality organically grown teas and helped in successfully matchmaking the Columbian enterprise with German importer J.T. Ronnefeldt KG.

Tropical timber from sustainably managed forests

IPD OPENS UP NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR PERUVIAN TIMBER EXPORTERS ON THE EU MARKET

The tropical rainforest is at risk from overexploitation and fire clearance, and this has brought trading in tropical timber into disrepute. Timber companies from countries like Peru therefore encounter difficulties in exporting their tropical wood products to the EU market. They are supported by the Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the precondition being that their timber is verifiably sourced from legal and sustainable forestry. Maderacre Rio Acre SAC is a company that meets the criteria of the FSC, demonstrating in practice that responsible forest management can help to protect the rainforest.

4th BGI Cut Flower Day: New sources for international imports

"Re-thinking import activities" - this is the title of the 4th Cut Flower Day organised by the "Association of the German Flower Wholesale and Import Trade" (BGI), which this time took place in cooperation with the IPD. Currently, around 90 percent of cut flower imports are delivered via the Netherlands. Despite, the interest on the part of German wholesalers and retailers and their readiness for direct imports is large. This was confirmed by this year's Cut Flower Day, where IPD presented new study results on the export potential and the demand situation for cut flowers from the IPD partner countries. Further, IPD took the opportunity to talk to florists about the demands they place on their partners and their quality standards.

Further information on the Cut Flower Day can be found here.
