Competitors:

Mr. Ajak Ateny and Kur Paul based at Leudier (Both are skilled agriculturalists)

Mr. Majur Chuti of Doupkupur farm located in Wunchuei

Mr. Mutyaba Rodgers- Fresh vegetable importer from Uganda

Their prices:

Tomatoes 3-4 € per kg

Collards 1.7-2 € per kg

Their products and product quality:

The farmers within Bor Town normally use OPVs seeds such as Money makers and CalJ and thus the yield is very poor and sizes of fruits are not uniform and mostly prone to disease and pest infestation.

The importers from Uganda do supply good quality produce with long self-life while they don’t put more interest on pesticides and fungicides usage since they don’t follow the self-life of the drugs before harvesting for the market thus endangering the health of consumers.

Competitors’ Customer Service:

  • Lack after sale services, for example some consumers lacks skills in regards to preparing vegetables such as collards and Spinach.
  • Timely delivery to guest houses and hotels is lacking

Positives or Negatives about their company / products:

International traders are determined and willing to adapt to the new market trend but only do experience language barriers while the local farmers do produce poor quality produce due to usage of poor-quality inputs hence resulting to less income and low customer retention ability.
