Bradford-based Smart Organic Solutions, which develops natural products with biochemists in the US and India, is working with Chamber International to boost global exports after breaking into the African market.
Over the next two years, the company plans to work alongside Chamber International to increase its exports by 40%.
Founded in 2010 by Operations Director, Nigel Silcox, Smart Organic Solutions, has built up a £250,000 turnover of which about 25% is from exports.
“We then undertook market research to identify the best countries to export to and were surprised that those in Africa showed most interest,” said Sales and Marketing Director, Mark Polack.
“We now have our products registered in Ghana, Nigeria, Uganda and the UAE. We have started exporting to Ghana and Nigeria and are negotiating with distributors in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).”
Chamber International director, Tim Bailey, added: “Smart Organic Solutions is a great example of a micro business developing sophisticated products with potential for global export.
“Our network of contacts in the UAE, Saudi Arabia and various West African countries have been asked to assist with introductions.
“There is huge consumer interest in this field and we look forward to helping the company increase exports worldwide.”
