Agricultural and Industrial Marketing | The AIM Co
Your cost-effective solution in trading with Africa
Welcome to The AIM Co (The Agricultural and Industrial Marketing Company) – an industrial and agribusiness marketing specialist that assists companies exporting to Southern Africa. We also work with local agribusinesses and manufacturers who wish to import from Africa. We offer a one-stop solution that includes comprehensive market research, investigation, logistics, and management, along with legal and administrative tasks that may be required.
Resuscitating agricultural projects
AIM specialises in the resuscitation of agricultural projects. AIM’s resuscitation effort is usually through a marketing intervention. AIM identifies a local and/or international market and then reverse engineer’s back to the farm in order to determine the production parameters required from the farm. Sometimes an investor is required, preferably one with strong agricultural experience. AIM usually facilitates such introductions. AIM assists in the raising of capital in order to reach the production requirements.
Most African clients approach AIM with a struggling agricultural enterprise, to which AIM responds as detailed above. The resuscitation of projects could require the development of a new agricultural enterprise, a level of value adding, increases production, the introduction of new appropriate and affordable technologies and finally technical information.
