Our ability to source multiple ingredients across several geographic regions is not only a specialized skill but also one that benefits our customers by providing them with unadulterated single source/origin potent products.
Africa has been open for business since antiquity. Ancient trade routes now host bustling modern African cities. Export is currently being heavily promoted by African governments as they aim to balance trade. This is great for the 54 countries that make up the continent as it facilities small enterprise’s ability to obtain hard currency while diversifying industry.
However, Africa’s lack of knowledge about foreign regulations, and a chronic inability to produce consistently to meet global export requirements present obstacles to African suppliers.
Merin kind bridges this gap by consulting our suppliers on industry best practices and by partnering with suppliers with an in-depth understanding of these foreign export regulations.
