Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)
  12. Taiwan: $2.1 million (0.5%)
  13. North Korea: $1.7 million (0.4%)
  14. Bahrain: $1.1 million (0.2%)
  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

The Singapore Way

I went back to Singapore recently and I was glad that I saw the amazing infrastructure again. Singapore is trully the hub for commodity trading and the cheapest place to establish a business, as per reported by World Bank.  Below are my actual photos

Rice Retailing Business Plan

It seems many Filipinos are desiring to enter into business but most don’t know where to start as they don’t know how to make a feasibility study or business plan.  Just this month, I already made 2: one is a Software-Hardware Development Business Plan and the other is Rice Retailing.  Both of which are former OFW or Overseas Filipino Worker.  I was told that they have the experience and ability but lacks capitalization so they would want to grab what OWWA and Land Bank of the Philippines is offering to them.    First I made a full blown Feasibility Study but they were told to only submit 2-3 pages.  With my experience with BID Network, I was able to immediately provide a Business Plan Fact Sheet or the summary format.  With my experience, I was able to help and earn though not all can pay as many only ask for my help.  So far, below are the list of topics I produced for requestors in London, Africa, Philippines and other countries:

1. Cavendish Banana Cultivation and Import-Export potentials

2. Moringa Cultivation and Processing

3. Hardware-Software Development and Audio-Video Image Capture and Analysis (embedded technology programming, Windows programming for iPad/iPhone applications and high level image capture used for satellite imaging, missile targeting system, digital camera technology, etc.)

4. Maize Cultivation and Milling

5. Rice Trading

6. Setting-up your business in Singapore

7. Setting-up your business in the Philippines

On progress:  Soya Beans Cultivation and Sorghum

 

If God willing, I will joint venture with a funder to formalize my Consulting business as there are times that I need to site visit locations for further research and analysis.  My desire is that one day I could establish my consulting company either in Singapore or in Tagaytay City Philippines.  I am willing to collaborate with other firms and big companies for a sutainable consistent work with promising income potentials.

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

  1. The Business

1.1. Business Model and Value Proposition

1.1.1. Definition

As such, BIGAS@N101 will serve as a Rice online wholesale arm of Sembawang Trading, and as the go-between for the manufacturers/producers and the wholesale buyer/importer to meet their needs in the market.

This business dream to expand in the near future in the areas of farming and support to farmers and new entrepreneurs.

1.1.2. Business Name

We are registered as…

The word “Sembawang” was derived from a residential place in Singapore called Sembawang Drive to where the proponent learned online commodity trading when he briefly stayed on 2005.  We facilitate various products for export.

But as to our local rice offer, we plan to use a different name, as per suggested Signage design below.  If not, we will have no choice but to register below logolized company name

Why?

“Bigas” means Rice and “Bigasan” means Rice Store. The “@” was inserted instead of plain “a” as it is a symbol of e-commerce and trading. This will communicate to consumers that we are more than an ordinary rice store, we also facilitate wholesale and be also found in the internet (on-line rice trading). Our store name is easy to understand.

1.1.3. Objective

To go beyond the usual and to be a partner in progress

Never stop searching for ways  to better serve and satisfy our clients.

At the same time, we aim to create  a balance-work atmosphere above and beyond personal gain.

  • Respect
  • Social responsibility
  • …”whatever we do, we do it all  for the glory of God”

Quotation:

“People succeeded in their projects

not only because they know

how to grow their crops

or their farm animals.

They succeed because they know

how to market they produce.

They know how to time their production

so that they sell their harvests

at a high price.”
– Zac B. Sarian

1.1.7. Location

Tagaytay is where I and my family reside.  It’s progress in terms of tourist destination and realty development is a strategic decision to establish a commodity trading firm.
