Buyer’s trip to Ghana and Ivory Coast

Together with the Dutch partner program Hortifresh, Import PromotionDesk (IPD), the German initiative for import promotion, is organizing a sourcing mission to Ivory Coast (5th-9th may) and Ghana (10-14th may).  Importers get the opportunity to visit both countries or just one country and to establish first contacts with potential business partners. IPD arranges company visits to reliable producers - individually selected according to impoters` requirements.


Ghana and Côte d'Ivoire have developed into interesting procurement markets for fresh and processed fruit. In addition to exotic fruits such as pineapples, bananas and papayas, dried fruits and fruit snacks are also produced.


All companies have been visited and carefully evaluated in advance by IPD and its partners. Criteria such as product quality, exportability and capacity as well as compliance with international standards and certifications were considered.
