Direct Trading Department
he Dominica Export Import Agency (DEXIA) through its Direct Trading Department acts as a medium through which local Dominican agricultural production can be distributed/exported to local, regional and international markets.
Dominica boasts of its exotic, healthy and tasty products grown under very natural conditions. Dominica's farmers pride themselves of having a rich agricultural heritage having produced major crops such as Vanilla, Cocoa, Coffee, Limes, Coconuts, Bananas and so much more.
The Direct Trading Department provides an avenue through which the export sector is being developed by means of continuous training in product development and packaging.
The farming public in Dominica receive continuous training resulting in sustained growth within the agricultural sector, the adaptation of new technologies and more so the implementation of food safety and quality standards.
Provision of regular shipping opportunities along with valuable technical advice and reasonable returns fuels an increase in production and subsequent export of Dominican products.
Standards are critical, and both the manufacturing sector and the fresh produce industry in Dominica are being encouraged to see the adoption of standards as a means of establishing Dominica's image on the world stage.
Direct Trading gives that kind of impetus to the export trade within Dominica by actively pursuing market opportunities for Dominica's agriculture.
