Najib and the team at Export Connect helped us to gain an understanding of a key potential export market so that we were well prepared for the follow up market visit. They also connected us with relevant potential customers. Overall an excellent service and highly recommended for those wanting to hit the ground running in a new market.
Export Connect exceeded our expectations. In seeking their advice on Southeast and Asian markets, we were impressed by the experience of their consultants, and their clear and constant communication throughout the project. Highly recommended.
Market research is so important for both new and existing markets in export. I engaged Export Connect to do the ground work for me for a market we were not performing so well in. The reporting and information is concise, relevant and clearly gives a real visual of where our product sits in-market. These reports in turn gave me valuable in-market information which we can now use to develop targeted strategies in-market. Najib and his team are exceptionally experienced in export markets and insights not just on this project but in the seminars as well.
Melbourne’s North Food Group has had the pleasure of working with Najib and the team at Export Connect on many occasions and the opportunities and expertise they offer MNFG and our members not only from an exporting perspective but the many activities they organise for our Food Manufacture partners is invaluable. The Exporters Forum we attended with buyers from the UK, UAE & Malaysia was informative. We had the opportunity to meet one-on-one with the international buyers, and now our members are either doing business or continuing negotiations with those buyers. Keep up the great work - looking forward to being involved in your next project. Count us in!
Export Connect coordinated an inaugural Organic Market visit in August 2018 to Singapore and Hong Kong. Through their extensive retailer, foodservice and importer network in these markets, Murray River Organics were able to meet with the right buyers, armed with competitor analysis and in-market insights.
Export Connect is redefining the model for providing quality export services that deliver real value to their clients. Najib's knowledge of and relationships across so many export markets are a significant value add, as is his 'real life' experience working with food and beverage exporters of all shapes and sizes. The Export Connect team are responsive, professional and committed to supporting their clients to develop sustainable export markets.
Oujan and Najib were both in constant communications with Steve and I and they went over and beyond to search other Countries for our product after we didn’t have any success with our two chosen markets. Oujan provided us with feedback weekly and kept trying for us with our niche product. Much appreciated.
Najib is an all round fantastic guy with loads of experience in the export market. His knowledge and experience has helped us grow and understand what is involved in exporting and has certainly made our experiences easier.
My trip to Singapore and Hong Kong with Export Connect has enabled us to make some important decisions on how we go about exporting into both these markets with our fresh produce. I was able to see enough of the market and meet with enough potential buyers to get an understanding of how these markets work and where we best fit.
Lecturer & Director of Professional Readiness Program SP Jain School of Global Management
S P Jain School of Global Management enjoys a great relationship with Export Connect through our internship and work experience programs. Recently Export Connect agreed to host a group of our students who were undertaking their capstone Applied Learning Project. Najib and Stefania gave our students a challenging task but during the course of the project supported and mentored them all the way. Our students all thoroughly enjoyed the Export Connect experience and their many interactions with Najib and Stef and commented on the dynamic culture of the organisation and the great work that they do in a very friendly, collaborative environment. Thanks Export Connect and here’s to us working together continually.
