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?”

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

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.

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…
