Where can I find a buyer?
The internet is an important media for sourcing of natural
products. Many traders find suppliers of natural products via the
internet. Similarly, many importers have internet home pages,
providing information on their interests and activities.
Interesting links for exporters include the following:
http://www.herbworld.com/cropshop/ where growers and buyers of
botanicals can get together. http://www.ingridnet.com where
suppliers of ingredients can market themselves for the food,
cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries. The cosmetic suppliers'
guide www.cosmeticsbusiness.com and Europages www.europages.com
contain contact details and activities of importers.
www.green-tradenet.de and www.greentrade.net provide information on
buyers and suppliers of organic natural products. International
trade fairs, including their home pages, are also good places of
identifying potential buyers (see below).
