They maybe old fashioned but this kind of craft are close to the heart of people, especially the children and promote values.  As such, there is a market for these and if given the fund grant, it will take a long way in terms of income and return on investment.

Yes, machine made Christmas decors from China are cheaper but handcrafted are still prefer by many as they are natural and heartwarming.  If given the chance, I intend to establish a store for such soon.  If I will be supported by a grantee or investor, online shop is also possible.

I do not claim ownership to the actual designs and photos.  Images are excerpted.

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).

Add:

Fruit cost to get FOB shipping cost

Add

Container/Shipping cost to get C&F or CFR shipping cost (CIF is more expensive)

We can also refer you to our contact Forwarder for a more reliable monitoring and shipping services from port to your doorstep.  It’s just that Forwarder will charge their fees.

Note:  Price of fruits is higher during peak buying season (e.g. Christmas season, days or weeks before Chinese New Year and Iranian New Year)

DIRECTORY OF CAVENDISH BANANA FARMS:

I own

a directory of Cavendish Banana farms and other end supplier of fruits from the Philippines, which one could not find in the internet (I personally research it)

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

  • 1,540 boxes per container
  • 40ft Reefer Container
  • Loading Port:  Davao City Port
  • Can allow FOB and C&F (CIF – for confirmation as price is different and higher)
  • Shipping Lines: PIL, OOCL, MISC, Hanjin, etc (depending on what is available)
  • It takes around 15-18 days sailing time from Davao to other countries (depending on how far the country of destination is).
    • Weekly schedule is every Tuesday and Sunday

Hard to get container bookings for spot buying because shipping lines are now very strict and prefer those deals under a contract with DP.  They require immediate payment and  no longer agree to collect unless you are long time buyer and clients and known by them already for quite some time.

Documentation

  • Commercial Invoice
  • Bill of Lading
  • Certificate of Origin
  • Quality Control Documents
  • Others

Payment Terms

  • T/T or via Western Money Union (I could help arrange terms but usually they only agree to least 80% advance down payment against 20% upon sending of valuable documents)

Banking Details will be provided or Contact details if via Western Money Union

  • Some may allow L/C or Letter of Credit but has to wait a number of deliveries as test of reliability in the part of buyer

I can assist the buyer-importer they need to open a bank account in the Philippines.  Currently, it is advisable to open at Banco De Oro (Davao branch or Metro Manila branch).  More details will be provided upon request.

There’s more!  I can provide the details upon request to my direct e-mail: denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

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.
