The Goal of this Site: Creating a Global Organic NetworkIn recent years the organic movement has spread all over the world, and organic products have moved out of a small niche for environment- and health-conscious consumers into the main stream. Nowadays such products are available in many shops and the interest of consumers is growing continuously.
In spite of this development the networking in the organic world is still limited and insufficient in many respects. The internet provides a lot of information about products, manufacturers, distributors, as well as about the movement, associations, organizations and media. However, finding an overview, practical information and links to other sources with the required contents remains difficult.
The portal “Global Organic Network” aims at closing this gap and connecting a wide range of organizations, producers, distributors, consumers, media, services etc. from different countries and regions.
Consumer InformationSome features of the portal:
→ in German, English and Japanese
→ interactive – direct communication plus mailing lists
→ up-to-date information from reliable sources / news ticker
→ user-friendly – clearly structured – fast
→ cooperating partners (names – logos – links to their websites)
→ An organic farmer or producer of organic, natural or fair trade products is looking for distributors and customers in Europe, America or Asia/Japan. Probably there are many potential buyers and partners, but it is not easy to find and communicate with them. Additional hurdles to overcome are language barriers and knowledge about customs and business practices.
→ A Japanese food company wants to add organic goods to their range of products and needs certified organic raw materials not grown in Japan and difficult to procure from established importers and trading companies.
In both cases, our portal will help to find relevant information and to make initial contacts.
Furthermore, ABC Enterprises and various partners can offer services, such as consulting, matchmaking, market research, surveys, translations etc.
