Success Story

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.

Success for organic products from Ethiopia on the EU market

IPD procures new trade partner for the Ethiopian exporter GreenPath Food

GreenPath Food is Ethiopia’s first – and, up until now, its only – certified EU-organic producer and exporter organisation in the fruit and vegetable sector. Import Promotion Desk (IPD) added the company to its export promotion programme in 2017. With support of IPD, GreenPath Food was able to raise awareness for its products at European trade fairs and to establish successful trade relations. For two years now, they have been in close cooperation with the Hamburg-based import organisation ElbeFruit Europe, which markets EU-organically certified avocados, vegetables and fresh herbs from GreenPath Food in German-speaking countries. Their cooperation in the organic trade sector opens up new opportunities for both partners.

Sustainable and aromatic: Organic walnuts from Kyrgyzstan

IMPORT PROMOTION DESK OPENS THE DOOR TO THE EU MARKET FOR KYRGYZ EXPORTERS

The Kyrgyz export company Vega Plus has made the leap into the European market. In February 2017 the  company exhibited at the BIOFACH Exhibition in Nuremberg and introduced its sustainable farming products to the international specialists at the event. The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) prepared Vega Plus intensely for the trade fair and also supported the company through the “last mile” with match-making. The success of the exhibition was quickly followed by the first business deal with Swiss importer Tinibaev Waldgeschenke KlG.

Sustained export promotion: Coconut sugar from Java

“When we entered the export market with coconut sugar we had collaborations with 100 small farmers – today it is already over 300,” says Amir Sudjono, founder of the company PT COCO SUGAR INDONESIA with headquarters in Purwokerto on the island of Java. The Indonesian firm has been participating in the export promotion programme of the Import Promotion Desk since 2015 and has in that time developed to become an international producer and exporter.

The IPD supports German importers in their search for super fruits

Klaus Böcker GmbH is an importer of exotic fruit products. Its portfolio comprises fruit juice, paste and concentrate from more than 500 kinds of fruit in more than 500 specifications. To continually expand its range of products, the company is always on the look-out for new suppliers. For this reason, Klaus Böcker GmbH turned to the Import Promotion Desk (IPD) – and made a catch: The IPD provided the German importer with a new trade partner in Egypt.

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.

IPD - Promoting trade in emerging and developing countries

Participation in international trade is an important condition for lasting measures to combat poverty in emerging and developing countries. Yet companies and associations in the partner countries lack the capacities, know-how and competencies to exploit the opportunities presented by international export markets. European importers, on the other hand, often have neither the contacts nor sufficient appreciation of the potential of the markets in the partner countries.
Import Promotion Desk (IPD) is the instrument for import promotion in Germany, efficiently and lastingly bringing together the interests of exporters in the partner countries with those of the European import sector. In doing so, IPD closes a strategic gap at the interface between development cooperation and foreign trade.

IPD Guide: Direct import of cut flowers to UK

This guide will support importers in understanding directly importing cut flowers into the UK from the Andean Countries. Within this guide the term “Direct Imports” is defined as the product journey directly from the grower country, into a UK port of entry (air or sea): i.e. without travelling via the EU, principally the Netherlands and the Dutch Auction (indirect imports).
Direct Imports of cut flowers to the UK are increasing generally, and there is greater interest in the potential benefits of direct imports.
Key information, highlighting the benefits and possible challenges for importing cut flowers directly into the UK from the Andean Countries will be covered within this guide. An overview of the process and journey for the importation of cut flowers from Andean Countries is also provided.

Fruit Logistica 2022: Diversity from Africa

Tropical fruits, fresh herbs and a large selection of vegetables
The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) highlights the potential of trade partnerships with producers from Egypt, Côte d’Ivoire, Ghana, and Morocco

Bonn/Berlin, 15.03.2022 – The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) presents tropical fruits, fresh herbs and a large selection of vegetables – partly in organic quality – from its African partner countries at Fruit Logistica, which takes place in Berlin from 5th to 7th April. The producers from Egypt, Côte d'Ivoire, Ghana, and Morocco have been carefully selected by IPD experts and are certified according to international standards such as GLOBALG.A.P.

"As an import promotion initiative, we make sure that the companies in the IPD program meet the quality requirements of European buyers and can supply necessary trade volumes", says Dr Julia Bellinghausen, head of IPD. "Other good arguments for importing from Africa are its seasons, the associated strategically favourable harvest periods for fruit and vegetables, as well as short distances."

At this year's Fruit Logistica, IPD supports around 24 producers from developing and emerging countries – in addition to African exporters, also companies from Ecuador, Colombia and Peru.

International Women`s Day: Economic participation promotes growth

"Powered by women": economic power of women in developing and emerging countries

Women in developing and emerging countries play an important and often underestimated role in care-giving and securing their family’s income. They work in the farming industry, in processing and in sales. But still it is generally women who have little access to education, land ownership and bank loans. The economic potential of women remains untapped. Equitable participation in economic life would not only improve women’s rights but also promote economic growth in these countries.

To mark International Women’s Day, Import Promotion Desk (IPD) presents three female entrepreneurs from Ethiopia, Sri Lanka and Colombia, who illustrate the enormous potential of women’s participation in economic life. IPD is active in 14 developing and emerging countries, supporting small and medium-sized companies with exports to the European market. The initiative is implemented by the globally active development organisation of German industry, sequa gGmbH, in close cooperation with the Federation of German Wholesale, Foreign Trade and Services (BGA). IPD is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
