Value Chain Development

Business Development

Businesses (from SMEs to big companies), play an important role in the development of value chains. They significantly contribute to economic growth. By supporting the growth of businesses, Fair & Sustainable enables these businesses to create decent additional jobs and hence sustainable economic opportunities.

F&S supports businesses and organizations that work with businesses via custom-made advisory services. Mentoring, coaching and business plan development are tools that we use to support business growth. In addition, we offer a training course on business case development.
