Herbal and Fruit infusions

There is large trade taking place in Natural Ingredients for Medicines..Raw material for herbal and fruit infusions is commonly traded in dried form. Drying takes place directly after harvesting and is carried out in the countries of origin. There are essentially two situations to consider:
i) The material can be grown, gathered and dried in the traditional manner by smallholders
and then sold to a professional trader. HACCP does not apply to smallholders. However, it
does apply to professional traders since they can provide the required degree of organisation
as specified by the EU Regulation on Food Hygiene (1) (2) for the application of HACCP
(Considerations 9, 2nd sentence, and 16, 1st sentence).
ii) Freshly gathered material is taken to a special drying plant by various different producers
or collectors. In such cases the necessary organisation is expected to be available to
support the implementation of HACCP.

Marketing - SME

Marketing is the main problem of these entrepreneurs...Marketing is the heart of every business, but many small businesses don't take much care of it. This may sound a no-brainer, but you'd be surprised how often small businesses fall into this trap. Many small firms don't bother even to have a marketing plan; they don't do market research, underestimate value of existing customers, choose wrong or costly advertising mediums, put less or no emphasis on online marketing, don't follow up customers, don't track marketing return on investment, don't take customer feedback — these are some common lapses.

Exporting Soyameal to Iran

Business Opportunity NOW
 ----------------------------------
 Here is a good business opportunity Iran’s worldwide imports of soyameal are close to 2.2 million tonnes annually.

This year, Iran will procure higher supplies of Indian soyameal — estimated at 0.8 million tonnes by March 2013 and 0.75 million tonnes during the leaner season of April-September 2013.
The Indo-Iran bilateral rupee paymen...t arrangement, which now provides for 100 per cent rupee trade, will ensure substantial diversion of trade to India with an added pull for soyameal.
Iran has to cover its demand of meal for its livestock and has few sourcing options other than India

The soyabean industry, which has flourished in Madhya Pradesh, has been insulated from any direct or indirect policy intervention
by the Centre, unlike wheat, rice, maize, pulses, edible oil.
Authorisation of “debit advice” to UCO Bank for effecting payment is received from Iranian counterparts within 7-10 days, subject to the documentation being compliant with terms of letter of credit.
