Essential info for International firms seeking to export to Southern Africa

Essential info for African-based farmers and agribusinesses seeking to export 

How we assist you

AIM clearly assists small and medium-sized international firms that are unable to send delegations to Africa to consider the marketability of their products and services. This offering enables small and micro enterprises the ability to be able to penetrate African markets at a fraction of the price it would cost them if they had to undertake the investigation themselves.

Conversely, having been thoroughly exposed to the often-polarised position of the Southern African farmer and small business owner over the past 33 years, AIM is well-positioned to be able to tailor solutions that are cost-effective, require considerably less management input and yet effective and risk managed. Solutions are practical and the mechanisms user-friendly.

AIM primary assists international firms to find and penetrate markets in Africa, particularly so in Southern Africa. Requests range from considering markets strategically or to consider a sector investigation of the client’s products in Africa. These requests usually require AIM to actually identify and commercially engage such markets in the wake of the full engineering of a quoting instrument that would enable the exporter to be able to quote in the relevant incoterm.
