Project Details


Description and Impact

We are a for-profit business with a very strong non-profit side, aka a social enterprise. We are making what we'd argue are Colombia's best beverages: organic certified, social, and sustainable. 

Internationalizing our sales will make it possible for our business to grow faster, which means being able to aid more small scale farmers in Colombia and offering reliable income which will help the peace process to live on.

We need a sales expert with a big heart for environmental and social issues that understands our philosophy and is willing to give his/her best to help us make our brand shine on international markets for the first time.

Deliverables

While we have been able to grow our sales quite well nationally, we are now looking to internationalize our social drinks business. All the necessary preliminary work is done - we even received the international organic certification (USDA / European Union). 

Next steps are the following:
- Review of product / company readiness for export sales
- Set up a detailed sales plan for internationalization
- Market research strategy --> execution on different markets we want to target
- Reach out to contacts, making it happen.

We are optimistic we'll be able to close 1-2 export deals together with the experteer by the end of his/her stay.
