IPD exporters from Egypt and Tunisia visiting German and Dutch importers

 

Establishing contacts – presenting products – talking sales – this formed the focus of the Selling Mission to which IPD invited three Egyptian and two Tunisian suppliers to Europe. The exporters have been given the opportunity to present their products to interested importers from Germany and the Netherlands. Therefore, IPD has previously arranged meetings with suitable buyers.

Within five days, the international delegation has visited ten companies and presented their range of nuts and dried fruits in Frankfurt, Cologne, Hamburg, Amsterdam and other cities. The Egyptians particularly brought cashew cornels and dates as well as a wide range of different date products. The Tunisian on the other side encountered great interest with their organic certified products, including dried pomegranate seeds, dates and various date products. Both exporters and the visited importers have been very pleased with the outcome of the individually arranged B2B meetings.

“The personal visit to our company allowed us to comprehensively communicate our needs and requirements to the suppliers without any pressure of time. Thanks to the pre-selection of IPD, we can also be sure that the suppliers are reliable trade partners”, concludes Michael Hebendanz, CEO of Delphi Organic GmbH.

Furthermore, both sides praised the very suitable matchmaking conducted by IPD. Due to the carefully selected exporters, their product range coincided with the actual demand of the buyers. Thus the participants have been able to exchange their experiences directly and negotiate in a targeted manner. The basis for a long-term relationship has been build!
