Dear Sir/ Madam
ORGANIC BUSINESS WORKSHOP: EXPLORING PARTNERSHIPS FOR NEW BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES
The Kenya Organic Agriculture Network (KOAN) together with its partners invites you to the second Organic Industry Business Event on Friday, 20th August (9.00am) at KALRO KABETE (NARL). As you may know, the Organic industry is the fastest growing sub-sector in agriculture globally, trading billions of dollars’ worth of products annually. This global trend is gaining pace in Kenya with people seeking healthy food amidst the Covid19 pandemic and food safety lapses in local food supply. A burgeoning middle-class is fast becoming picky with food and export markets are becoming increasingly critical on sustainability, carbon emissions and pesticide residues.
The Kenya Organic Agriculture Network has been an industry leader making meaningful business linkages within the organic space. KOAN has assisted notable companies with strategic and much needed advisory and farmer linkage services that have led to millions of dollars’ worth of trade both locally and for export to date. In a bid to rapidly expand the organic space, KOAN has partnered up with the Kenya Agriculture and Livestock Research Organization (KALRO), the Research Institute for Organic Agriculture (FiBL), Africrops Limited, the Organic Agriculture Centre of Kenya (OACK) among other organizations to foster organic market development by focusing on both the domestic and export market.
The Organic Business Workshop is an invite only event to present progress on organic business opportunities for the local and export market, focusing on organic products originating from Murang’a County. There will be opportunity to discuss and integrate new partners into the identified pathways within three main Strategic Business Groups;
- Organic Vegetables and Fruits for Local Market,
- Organic Herbs and Spices and lastly
- Organic Fruits for Export.
We are looking forward to your much encouraged engagement and participation in the workshop, as it is the next phase of exploring joint organic business opportunities. Meanwhile, please acknowledge this letter by getting in touch with the undersigned and Martin Njoroge Kimani – firstname.lastname@example.org (+254 725 295 437 ) who will also answer any questions you may have.
