Fruitful opportunities in Germany
The Centre for the Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries (CBI) is an Agency of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Netherlands. CBI was established in 1971 in order to support producers / exporters to get a foothold on the market in the Netherlands, support to Business Support Organisations in improving their capabilities and to act as a Matchmaker between suppliers and buyers
In 1991 the activities were expanded to EU and since 1998 it has become an Agency.
CBI and Import Promotion Desk of Germany (IPD) have issued four new factsheets to help exporters of exotic fruits in emerging markets meet the increasing demand in Germany.
According to experts in the fruits and vegetables sector working for Germany’s Import Promotion Desk (IPD), the demand for mangoes and avocados in the country is steadily increasing. To meet this demand on a long-term basis, German importers are being forced to look for alternative sourcing markets. This, in turn, offers opportunities for exporters from emerging markets like Egypt, Indonesia and Peru. To help bring together importers and exporters, CBI, the Centre for the Promotion of Imports from developing countries, in collaboration with the IPD, has developed and issued a set of relevant factsheets.
Quality and diversity
In addition to mangoes and avocados, German importers are also keen to offer a wider range of exotic fruits to their consumers, such as cherimoyas and pomegranates, which are perceived in Germany as particularly trendy products. By expanding their offer with these tasty and exotic fruits, importers want to boost their product diversity.
Basis for export development
The four factsheets on mangoes, avocados, cherimoyas and pomegranates contain a wealth of information on consumer trends, European legislation, buyer requirements, packaging and labelling. The factsheets are an important tool for exporters and a useful basis for the development of their exports to Germany.
Partnership CBI - IPD
The collaboration between CBI and IPD is part of the TRIC (Trade Related Instruments Connected) partnership. This partnership consists of eight European import promotion organisations that collaborate in the development of market intelligence. Thanks to this collaboration, TRIC partners can cover more sectors and markets and reach more companies. The other TRIC partners are GIZ (German Agency for International Cooperation), Finnpartnership, the Swiss Import Promotion Programme (SIPPO), the Enterprise Federation of Norway (VIRKE), Belgian Trade for Development (BTC) and Chamber Trade Sweden.
The Import Promotion Desk (IPD) is the platform of the Federal Republic of Germany for the promotion of imports. The IPD connects German importers with small and medium-sized international trade players from selected developing countries and emerging nations. The goal of the IPD is the sustainable and well-structured import promotion of specific products from selected partner countries - under compliance with high quality, social, and environmental standards. The IPD has been initiated by sequa, a globally operating development organisation in close cooperation with the Federation of German Wholesale, Foreign Trade and Services (BGA). The IPD is funded by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
