FruitCon provides EU market preparatory-consultancy and market linkages to farmers in developing, and potential export countries.
We help farmers and exporters, to set up their businesses and invest, focusing on exact market needs, product and delivery specifications, certifications, and price ranges pursuant to market trends.
Our model is pragmatic and connects the investing farmer/ exporter to buyers of their product. This off-sets the risk of farming, investing and later on failing to find clientele, resulting in unaccounted for food and financial losses.
Our aim is to enable agribusiness chains that holistically benefit people, the planet, and generate profit.
Our impact driven team is fashioned with expertise spreading from "farm to beyond-fork".
We have learnt from the best, having all worked for EU's market leading organic and conventional trading companies.
