Malunggay (Moringa) Juice… the best natural antibiotic and we experience it first hand.  It don’t taste good but it really cures ailment and viruses.   To improve its bitter taste, one author suggest to add honey.

Aside from the benefits of purification, detoxification, and anti-infection, moringa provides many other health benefits

as the leaves contain generous amounts of various essential nutrients, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that boost an individual’s immune system.

They are rich in Vitamins A and C, potassium, calcium, protein, iron, and folic acid. That is why daily consumption of this wonder plant can really do wonders to our health in general. It’s the best alternative medicine you can find. Better if you mix it with other vegetables through a juicer. It cures cancer, ulcer, diabetes, flu, etc.

Feasibility Study for Buyer/Importer for Risk Management

I am into commodity trade and export since 2006, primarily offers Cavendish Banana from Philippines, Rice from Thailand/Vietnam and Moringa Propagation.

Trading and Import-Export is a money making machine but I am saddened how many importers fall into waste of time and losses of lots of money.    Many are earning but a lot are being cheated as there are so many scammers in the internet. Per my own experience, the bait always entraps those who are greed and the ones who only think of  profit yet do not invest on feasibility study and planning.   In the contrary, those who knew the importance of research are the ones who earn more revenue in the long run as it is necessary to manage the business right and its risks involve.

With this realities in the trade and import-export business, I offered an extra mile services of doing their feasibility study and business plan and wants to ask of my services.  I am thankful because they turned-out satisfied.

I provide below studies if needed but I needed ample support as doing a research required at least a week or  two for a brief stay in the target location.  Such is not an easy task and somehow inconveniently risky.

– Feasibility Study

– Business Plan

– Marketing Plan

– Brand Equity

– Other research material for a credible business direction.

Some clients do not believe and prefer to find the supplier themselves.   Everyone is free to decide.  It’s just that buyers mostly fall to wrong person/company as end sellers and/or farm owner-grower are hard to find in the internet.   What mostly found in the net are the  Trading companies or agent/broker.    Worst, some buyers  fall to a pretender-scammers.  To avoid hassles and loss of money, I suggest to my client buyers/importers that I can lead them to right contacts by allowing me to first coordinate with farm owner/end seller and provide feasibility study based on rigid research and actual site visit.  Otherwise, the risk is to the buyer/importer if they go straight to the location.    The sample is available upon request via e-mail:  denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

Earn More in Cavendish Banana Export

Cavendish Banana Export and Trade opportunities in the Philippines is very lucrative if you genuinely knew how and where to get it reliably.

My intention is satisfied client and long term business relationship, I don’t just think about what I will earn in one deal. What I mean is if you will just buy from the company I represent, the price may be high because it is affected by how big companies dealt with farm owners and large demands caused by seasons as the upcoming Iranian New Year (recently Chinese New Year and Christmas season).  Nonetheless, I can help you get lower the price but I need your cooperation.

Below is what I suggest to lower your expenses and increase your profit:

– I need to represent you directly to the farms to where Chiquita, Dole and Delmonte get their bananas. Foreigners cannot just go to them by themselves as it is both unsafe and too far from City proper.  Their contacts and addresses are also not found in the internet. What mostly found is only Trader-Broker or giant companies as Dole and Delmonte and Chiquita.

**Their secret is they only buy the fruits and pay the separately for the packing. They

manage themselves from packing to loading till container reaches consignee

– They order the box themselves directly through local representative form box manufacturer enough for a month continuous deliver.  They reorder and reorder on a regular basis timely for monthly requirement.  The box supply are stored with inventory either in the box manufacturer’s warehouse or farmer’s stock room.

– They apply local permit to operate legally and export bananas to where they intend them to be delivered.  The cost is only minimal for the permit fees

https://fyi09.wordpress.com/2009/12/14/how-to-establish-your-business-in-the-philippines/

– They partner with local forwarder for continuous supply of container  of your choice on a weekly basis, tracking of ships, timely schedules like ETD and ETA, assurance and insurance, monitoring of container supply of power while in the care of shipping firms to avoid damages on bananas.  If you don’t partner with a reliable Forwarder, you cannot get containers of your choice anytime you want because big companies already made reservations and they signed years contract.


– You/We need to hire local trusted Quality Inspector (but with my hands-on monitoring and administration for every stage of operations till the container reaches you or your consignee.

– I can assure you of risk management and damage control if we partner.  If in any case there are damage boxes/bananas, with your report-claim with code of box and photo, I can ask the farmers for replacement readily been given in the next shipment.

– You need to open a local bank account for a speedy transaction and payment to farmers for timely harvest and delivery of bananas  (I suggest Banco De Oro Philippines – the largest and most reliable in the Philippines and also have branches/affiliated partners in many countries of the world).  With this, your money is safe not even me can touch it…

you can and will transact to them directly either through the internet or phone.  The farmers also uses this bank so wherever you are, you can immediately pay the farmers so there will be no delays in delivery.  Banco de Oro offers the needed business instruments as Letter of Credit, fund management, etc.

Added to my service.

– I can make you website to where you can monitor regular updates and schedules and news

– I can provide you all the design you need and want for this business (e.g. box design,

logo/label design, brochure and calling card design, T-shirt design for packing workers, etc.)

– I can help you process all the paperworks and permits requirement

– I will help in the monitoring and administering.

–  there’s more.

I will share to you the secret I don’t tell my other buyers and clients.  But I need partnership agreement and support as this is not an easy task.  And all the details I know and gained over the years you cannot found in the internet or be revealed by other traders you can meet or talk to.

For those who are interested, I can provide detailed business plan and proposal through my direct e-mail.

Cavendish Banana Import-Export Is Very Lucrative

If you are into Cavendish Banana or Premium Pineapple Import-Export Business, I lcan help you find the genuine end-seller so you can have the lowest possible price and best quality fruits you desire with consistency and reliability.

I am into Cavendish Banana export and I can lead an interested importer to genuine farms and/or cooperative where Dole, Delmonte, Chiquita and other known brands get their premium bananas and pineapples in the Philippines.

To avoid waste of time and money in the part of the importers/traders, I offer my services to deliver below results:

–  Reliability on Quality

–  Lower Cost

–  Monitoring the operations of your order

–  After Sales Service

–  Shipping Assistance

–  Price stabilization

–  Own Brand and Label

–  Quality Packing

–  Assured Quality Control

–  Risk and Damage Control

–  Goodwill relationship between importer and farm-owners and agencies involved like container providers, box maker, etc.

–  Avoid cheating in the part of supplier

–  Establishment of Importer’s monitoring office

– Document processing and registration

–  Other interest of importers

FACTS: Many of the visiting importers thought they already talk with the end sellers when they went to Philippines or province of Davao… they’re wrong! Commonly, they just meet with the local traders or middle-man type of company and the price they got is high.  This is a fact because farm owners are located in the far side of Mindanao Region seldom they face clients because their contact details are not found in the internet.  They could not be found in Davao City proper either – they are in the farms far outside the city proper.  That’s where I come in and I offer my services.  I could meet them for your, if you are interested.  Meeting them, I still need to travel both by plane from Manila (Luzon) to Mindanao, and travel by land around 120km (one of my trusted contact farm owners in Compostela Valley).  The location is somehow risky for foreigners but if a client insists, he can go with me at his own risk.  The location is very rural (banana plantations).

DIRECTORY OF CAVENDISH BANANA FARMS:

With this, I can reliably lead you to them upon you request.  I can even tour you to either known brand’s warehouse-farms or farms manage by Cooperatives.

Loading and Shipping

  • 40ft Reefer Container

From what I found out, cavendish banana import-export business is very lucrative (one will surely earn a lot).  But the one entering this business must learn not just how to earn but how it is from grassroots.  That’s how I can help but I need ample support.

Unadulterated Honey from Philippines

Unknown to many, there is a bee farm in Cavite Philippines that produce pure virgin honey from Italian bees, entirely from plant nectar.  It produces unheated, unfiltered, unprocessed and unadulterated; and it contains simple sugars, vitamins, minerals, amino acids, and enzymes. Another thing, it is highly nutritious with enhanced medicinal and healing properties.

Virgin honey is extracted every summer, bottled it, and seals it fresh to preserve all its natural goodness.  Bees from farm make each 500 gram bottleful of honey from the nectar of over 5 million flowers.

Below are the products produced out of honey harvest:

Medicinal Plants Common to Philippine Soil

The most famous and highly demanded at this point as far as I know is…

  1. Moringa also called as Malunggay andHorse Radish (Moringa Oleifera Lam)

Leaves

  • Human Food
  • Animal Feeds
  • Natural Medicine
  • Better source of mother’s milk
  • Fertility enhancer
  • Natural pesticide
  • Viand and Delicacy ingredients

Pods

  • Human Food
  • Natural Medicine
  • Source of Seeds

Seeds

  • Edible Oil/Biofuel/Perfume Oil
  • Source of moringa seedling
  • Cosmetics and skin care ingredients
  • Fertilizer
  • Water Purifier
  • Medicine
  • Animal feeds

Flower

  • Medicine
  • Health Drink

Roots, Bark and Gum

  • Medicine
  • Alley Cropping

To those who have not known of moringa’s nutritional value, below is miracle like benefits…

= 7 x more Vitamin C than Orange

= 4 x more Vitamin A than Carrots

= 4 x more Calcium than Milk

= 3 x more Potassium than Banana

= 3 x more Iron than Spinach

= 3 x more Vitamin E than Almond

More on Health Benefits

  • Dietary benefits in response to increased health consciousness in US/EU, moringa being low in trans-fatty acids
  • High oleic acid content good emollient
  • Nutritional benefits ideal particularly for dietary supplements

Moringa Oil Benefits

  • Low iodine value (better than diesel)
  • Low cetane (ignition) number (better than both coconut fat and diesel)
  • Cost is comparable to alternatives (e.g. Soybean oil)
  • Could potentially obtain carbon credits in future, which would further enhance value of planting Moringa

On my own observation and opinion, having a farm or manufacturing for moringa products is one of the most profitable and fulfilling among other medicinal plants.   Employment and income potential will reach as far as distant rural areas and native’s locations. It will even benefit other functions: truck drivers, port operators, others. As to our study, this will benefit 100 plus direct and indirect workers in its 1-3 years of start-up operations, not to mention the number of people to work for suppliers, logistics, health workers to provide medical support for our workers, etc.

Moringa also helps purify water and offer cheaper alternative to mechanical filtration.  Study shows that moringa is better than in bio fuel source and technology. Moringa trees grow easily from seeds or cuttings. They grow quickly even in poor soil and bloom 8 months after planting.

I currently desire to put up a farm in Tagaytay Philippines.  I can provide a credible business plan for enthusiast or if you are willing for a joint venture investment.   My business plan and proposal is available upon request at my direct e-mail denissalvatierra@yahoo.com
