Our Expertise

EuroAfri Link (EAL) is a Business Development Advisory Service, targeting small, medium and large agribusiness entrepreneurs; cooperatives and associations; NGOs; organisations; students and professionals.

We specialise in connecting European entrepreneurs and markets (principally in the Netherlands) to African agribusinesses engaged in agriculture production, with a focus on smallholder groups and especially women. Our products may be organically or conventionally farmed, with sustainability at the forefront.

We also match project partners to consultants, who can provide expert advice on writing successful project proposals for funding the expansion of your agribusiness or for realising your development project.

We connect aspiring students and professionals to their dream universities and institutions and offer career counseling. We link with, as well as assist, smallholder cooperatives and associations, so that they may acquire the necessary agricultural and agribusiness know-how to enable them to produce goods that meet international standards and are competitive in the global market.

Operating in Uganda,  Cameroon, Ghana, and Kenya, we are a team of academic, professional, and multicultural development and trade experts with local field experience. We are professionals and graduates of reputable institutions, including Wageningen University and Van Hall Larenstein, amongst others. Our expertise is in the agricultural sector, capacity building, trade facilitation, negotiation and marketing, African market intelligence, communication, networking and buyer-seller matchmaking, project management coupled with EU food law, and access to the African Agriculture sector ecosystem. We have a strong emphasis, and a deliberate focus, on mainstreaming African women into agribusiness and other productive sectors. We are also well connected and understand perfectly how supply and demand work within our product supply chain. Our services are tailor-made, meeting the demands of foreign buyers and local producers, which are unique according to the product and the type of buyer.
