providers, certification, testing and calibration, finance, logistics and advisory services must be updated in line with the latest market access issues. For all who
want to understand the latest interventions in support services and how to better access such supports the sessions today cover the issues and opportunities
Day 3: 27th September: Accessing and sustaining the market. Business opportunities for fruits, vegetables, herbs and spices.
Given the different dynamics at play from the enabling environment to value chain support services it is important to examine how the counties are creating and growing opportunities for horticulture and to understand from individual businesses how they are sustaining their presence in a very competitive sub-sector. A must attend day for entrepreneurs (agripreneurs) entering the sector or seeking to diversify and do business differently.
