11 September, 2019
- The International Trade Fair is Eswatini’s platform for the interaction of local and international businesses as well as public entities. It is hosted by the Eswatini Investment Promotion Authority (EIPA) with the aim of generating more opportunities for investments into the country. This year the Fair was themed “Eswatini Open for Business” wherein participants were to show how their products and/or services enhance the country’s international trade relations. Under the category of Business Support Institution the criteria of ‘value chain’ was most prominent where institutions were to show their level of commitment in each stage of the value chain. ESWADE won first place in this category primarily because of her keen involvement in all the stages of her value chain and adherence to Global Standards such as GAP. The organization’s display focused on Climate Smart Agriculture (where permaculture and conservation agriculture were discussed); High Value Crops on demand in international markets; Goat Farming and the opportunity markets in the East and lastly Bee-Keeping where farmers were taught on the demand of different products that come from agriculture. Through this award, the organization is challenged to continue making a meaningful difference in the lives of both urban and rural farmers.
