A client of Advance Consulting is exporting a range of organic essential oils from Nepal to Europe. After concluding a long-term purchasing contract with a French buyer, the Nepalese company decided to invest in its product range and quantity.

For this purpose we assisted the partners to develop a plan of co-operation and to obtain funding for the realisation of their targets. The activities to be supported by a grant of close to Euro 200,000 include:

  • extensive training and capacity building programme for herb farmers and collectors;
  • establishment of a pilot cultivation and distillation unit;
  • setting up of a quality management system with administration system for organic and Fair Trade certification.
