ECDC Initiatives Bring Benefits for Nelson Mandela Bay Business
A number of Port Elizabeth businesses have benefited from Eastern Cape Development Corporation (ECDC) initiatives.
The Corporation states in its Annual Report 2013/14 that of the six companies on a permanent exhibition in Ningbo, China, two were from Port Elizabeth.
The two companies were Mendabath, a Port Elizabeth-based bath resurfacing and kit manufacturer and Momentos of Africa, a Port Elizabeth-based manufacturer of mohair garments, which sources its raw materials from the Cacadu district.
In addition, in December last year, ECDC staged a mohair show in Ningbo, which resulted in the sale of mohair scarfs totalling R38 250.00. On the same show Makana Meadery sold mead wine to the value of R30 000 (600 bottles) “with a follow up of 1 600 bottles for the 2014/15 financial year”.
ECDC says it also participated in two of the “world’s acclaimed exhibitions” in Dubai and Japan.
It adds that Sage Kitchen from Port Elizabeth and pineapple products manufacturer Summerpride from East London were selected by the Corporation to participate at the Gulfood exhibition in Dubai.
Dynamic Commodities, which is based in the Coega Industrial Development Zone (IDZ), participated in FOODEX, Japan where “a number of positive trade leads were identified”.
ECDC has now completed two further studies of market opportunities one focusing on selected Asian markets. - MetroMinutes.
