Low Cost Commodity Trade Investment

I am facilitating export deal since 2006 after I learned commodity trading in Singapore through a Singaporean mentor. Since then, I was able to facilitate shipments of Cavendish Banana, Pineapple, Rice and other products for export mostly in Middle East countries.  I am also utilized in  feasibility/business plan making and other consultancy.

I guess my main capital are my sincerity and extra-mile service offer to my inquiring clients mostly from Middle East, Europe and Africa.  Of course my more than 10 years experience in the corporate sector and earlier background in Advertising is an edge as well.   As I am known  already by many buyers/importer,  my existing client is ordering asap for 1 – 20ft container load of  Philippine products (consolidated).   I was glad because my client order not only because of price but because they trust me.  Proof of past deal is available upon request.   I am excited because my client also orders Cavendish Banana and Pineapple in40ft container per fruit

– 13.5kg packing for banana with 1,520 boxes per container

– 12kg packing for pineapple with 1,560 per container

With my affiliation to direct manufacturers and farm-growers, I was able to quote lower price.   I can earn more but I need immediate financial assistance from an Investor or joint venture partner to finance the shipments and for my minimal operational expense requirement.    Pls refer to below link for the product offer website I am now doing (still in progress but an be viewed already)…

https://sites.google.com/site/homegrownphil/

Added to my service is a personalized monitor website where my clients can check on their orders and shipments schedules in the convenience of their own internet cellphone or laptop or PC wherever they are or whenever they want to check.  They could even check in even on a car or on plane.  Pls click to link below for sample site I intend…

https://sites.google.com/site/trademonitorboard/

This business is very lucrative with less capitalization requirement and controlled risk.   Rest assured that I will earn already earn after the first shipment.  But I need at least 3-5 shipments or after the repeat order to pay back my joint venture partner or investor his/her return on investment.  I am willing whatever it take or sign a contract but below amount to start right away…

US$1000 = first shipment 20ft container to Dubai (Philippine grocery products) plus registration and banking requirement for opening a corporate account), with potential order of Cavendish Banana and Pineapple.

**As I will ask for at least 50% down payment to buyer-importer (full payment against valuable/shipping documents), I am willing to accept less in the meantime.  Nevertheless, it will better if I get more as I need to pay the supplier and customs broker in advance to get the container and speed up the shipment with reliability and minimal risk.

I am willing to provide Business Plan if investor/joint venture will require.  Nevertheless, better if I will be given advance amount to immediately ship the needed 1-20ft container destination Dubai.  I can be contact directly at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

Business Concierge

Many wishes to have their own business but in reality, only few succeeded as it is not as easy as other thought of it.  Thanks to internet, one can found a lot of stories and information.

A feasibility study is basically an analysis of the viability of an idea.   In short, it is one form of risk management to whatever one intends to establish.  Business is easier said than done.  Without feasibility study is a risky business.  With it is passing through the right direction because it help answer the essential question of “should we proceed with the proposed project idea?”

Feasibility studies has its different uses, format and purpose but goal of most who are utilizing it agrees to  main goal – determine the viability of their idea before proceeding with the development of a business.    For you to not fall into common traps in business, I am willing to provide my sincere support and can serve as your personal Concierge or someone who can provide the business necessities you and your company needs:

No one is an island in the field of business as education, experience and money are not enough and is 

not a guarantee for success.   Believe or not, many end in losses of their hard earned money and wasted a lot of time.  Sad to say, there is no “UNDO” command button to regain what you own.  One common reason for the mistake is that most Entrepreneur invested in their desired business but did not put a dime to produce Feasibility Study Study or Business Plan.  Without it is like entrusting your money to the wind or building a building without structural design and computation.

Please take note that a Feasibility Study and other form of preparation is not just for Seller, but also crucial to Buyers and Importers.  One clear proof to this is one of client’s experience as stated in my other document

Feasibility Study et al

Above was the latest Feasibility Study I made for two weeks after rigid research, as per requested by an Investor based in UK.

Maize Cultivation for Tanzania and Uganda is my latest project (also requested by the same UK Investor who ask me Moringa Cultivation Feasibility Study).  He is also requesting for Beans Propagation as per below cover page.My other line-up projects are as follows:

CRITICAL AREAS in LOSS PREVENTION (Cavendish Banana Import-Export)

I am into facilitating Cavendish Banana Import-Export from since 2007.     Since then, I experienced a lot.  Every customer and shipments made are a learning process.   Yes this business is very lucrative but unless you are familiar with the system and risks involve, you will surely end up in a mess of loss of time and money.

To resolve the issues, I formulated my own report based on years of experience, rigid research and consultation.  Below is the result and I titled it as, “Cavendish Banana Import-Export CRITICAL AREAS in LOSS PREVENTION.”   You may want to view it for your reference if you are into this business.  Otherwise, you may just end up in losses and waste of time (especially if you are not that experienced).  My report also includes actual damage report experienced by my client from his former supplier.

To have a bird’s eye view of my report, below is the actual Table of Contents…

  • Low Price Trap in Cavendish Banana Import-Export
  • Basic Checklist
  • Quality / Duration of Storage
  • Packaging
  • Transport
  • RF Temperature
  • Humidity / Moisture
  • Ventilation
  • Biotic Activity
  • Gases
  • Self Heating / Spontaneous Combustion
  • Odor
  • Contamination
  • Mechanical Influences
  • Toxicity / Hazards to Health
  • Shrinkage / Shortage
  • Insect Infestation / Diseases
Although this field is basically sales in nature, finding the lowest price is not enough.  The importer must find first the genuine farm owner-exporter or grower with set standards on harvest, packing operations, loading, shipping and customer relations.  There are lots one can find in the internet but in reality, the genuine are hard to find as most in the internet are mere trading firms or middle men companies.  To find the genuine, first, an importer must cooperate with someone who knows where the genuine farm owner/grower are, and willing to lead you directly to them.  Second, the importer needs his contact to monitor the operations until bananas are shipped and reached the port of destination in good shape and expected freshness.  That is  Risk Management or Loss Prevention.  An importer cannot just rely the matters in the hands of the supplier, especially if the destination is as far as Middle East, Europe and Russia.  It has to be delegated to trusted experienced someone, or face the consequences caused by lack of understanding and monitoring team.
Another thing.
Right Container provider, right set temperature and ventilation is also very important.   At the same time, below suggestion is very crucial:
1. Pre-survey of the plantation is a must

2. Hire Quality Inspector/s to check harvests (live-Cut!)

3. To hire Quality Inspector to supervise packing line at the weighing and selection point

4. Clear and specific purchase and cutting order to the growers/farmers

5. Someone to random check on delivery before loading into the container

6. Securing of the cut-off time to secure maximum 12 hours between cut and cooling.  At the same time, counter check set temperature and ventilation.

7. Inspection of the fruit thru the Bureau of Plant Industry (Department of Agriculture and SGS).

8. Others as the need arises.

More details are clarified with recommendations on issues at my report.

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.

Cavendish Banana is Food, Jobs and sure ROI

Can’t image life without Banana.  Can you?

This tropical fruit is so ordinary, yet many people can’t live without it.

Size of cavendish bananas range from around 15–25 cm in length and are one of Philippine’s top export products.  It has its uses either for direct human consumption or industrial ingredients/use.  It can be found in many recipes and are used in baking,  fruit salads, wine making, and so fort and so on.  Bananas can be ripen naturally or through a process as practiced by importers.   Unlike common bananas, it is quite bigger in size.

As sort of a trivia, Cavendish Bananas are named in honour of William Cavendish, 6th Duke of Devonshire.  Who acquired an early specimen, and from whose hothouses the cultivars were developed for commercial exploitation worldwide.  Source: Wikipedia

Unknown to many, this is more than a delicious food or ingredients.  This is multi-million Dollar export business.  Cavendish Bananas are offered for export in various weight packing:  18kg, 13.5kg, 7.2kg and 4.7kg (or depends on customer’s preference).  Minimum order is commonly 1-2  40ft Reefer Container, shipped by a cargo vessels.  One of our biggest buyers are Iran and other Middle East countries.  They mostly buy on a weekly basis or 1 year contract.

We seek Joint Venture/Investor Partner.  Our credible Business Plan is available upon request at denissalvatierra@yahoo.com

Believe me, Cavendish Banana is sure ROI at a short period of time.

You Can’t Go Wrong With Agriculture Investment

I used to work for a corporate firm (8am to 5pm job), having been expose to almost all sorts of office task including earlier background on visual design and advertising.  But after more than 10 years in office duties, I decided to shifted to commodity trading after I went to Singapore on 2005 (mentored by a Singaporean).  My start was a sort of trial and error (e.g. crude oil, scrap metal, seafoods, agricultural products, etc.).  Later I concentrated on agriultural products primarily on cavendish banana and rice as I seem to fit on it.  As others have said, “you can’t go wrong if you are happy with what you are doing and/or if you invest in agriculture.”

above image is a ripe cavendish banana

I just tried on offering bananas as per request of an acquaintance business woman.  In a matter of one week, I my self could not believe that a Lebanese client arrived and asked me to book himself and his wife to a five star hotel in the Manila.  After few a few day talks and presentation, my client handed me advance downpayment in cash (US$). Weeks later, my partner were shipping containers of Cavendish Bananas to Jeddah, Dubai UAE, Abu Dhabi, Kuwait, Egypt and other Middle East countries.   Little did I knew then that exporting bananas is a profitable venture and has been highly demanded mosly in the Middle East.  At times, you need not seek buyers because they always come seeking sellers like you as what happened to me.  But be careful as there are also lots of scammers in this business.  Beside Middle East, other countries also import Philippine Cavendish bananas as it is one of the most favored in the world.

If you knew the farm in Mindanao, you will be surprise how large the plantation is and continue to supply though importers  demands are getting bigger and bigger as times goes by.  It’s just that I noticed something… price at times could not be controlled or lowered because capitalization for operation is too limitted.  Unless a foreign investor is willing to joint venture with us.

I am a partner to highly credible former managers of known global brands.  Our skills and years of experience in this business is very reliable but the investment is our limitation to be highly competitive.  Let me show you some photos…

If you have the capacity to invest and would want a long years ROI, below is a highly credible offer with earning capacity beyond usual investment for short period of time…
