Course 1: The Product Passport
Detailing the Export Process
Franchise Africa is an international trade and development agency specializing in bilateral trade between the United States and Sub-Saharan Africa. The core of Franchise Africa's service is to work with suppliers in Africa to Source U.S. buyers. We attack the trade barriers that stand between African suppliers and U.S. buyers every day as apart of our export consulting services. Our vision for this online training program is to approach each barrier to trade and teach you our strategy.
In this program we transfer our knowledge to learners through 12 comprehensive courses. Each course will assist the learner with developing the skills to meet the standards, quality and consistency U.S. buyers require when working with foreign suppliers. To have access to an abundance of an agriculture product is not enough to be a successful exporter. You must have a developed business, understand the export process and meet the quality standards.
The foundation of our training program is the “Product Passport”. With the "Product Passport" each step of the exporting process is put into perspective. The learning platform is designed for farmers and suppliers, start-up businesses and established businesses who are exporting for the first time or have not exported to the United States successfully in the past.
The "Product Passport" course is designed to help you succeed by giving you insight into the mind of the buyer. At the conclusion to this 9 module course you will have the complete outline to develop a "Product Passport" for your business, a complete overview of the export process, a completed export assessment of where you stand, whether you are an individual start up or pre-existing company. Once you complete this course you will be ready to begin the development of your Export Plan.
