The goal of this Business Clinic was to provide agricultural sector producers and processors consultancy on marketing and sale, introduction of standards, food production technology and access to new markets.
The first, out of four planned, business clinic was attended by 26 representatives of agribusiness (companies, cooperatives, farms) who, through direct questions to advisors from relevant areas, got concrete answers, as well as suggestions for future successful conduct of business.
Clinic consisted of two parts. During the first one, plenary session, experts from above mentioned areas had the opportunity to present themselves as well as their area of expertise to present agribusiness and go through topics of joint interest. In the second part of the Clinic experts were given separate locations for direct consulting with smaller groups of agribusiness or “one-on-one” consultancy. Groups were created based on the interest of participants for specific areas of expertise.
Additionally, interested producers and processors applied for further consultancy from mentioned areas of expertise.
Business Clinic is one in a series of activities of the USAID/Sweden FARMA II Project that are being implemented to improve market possibilities and linkages for producers and processors from the agro-food industry.
This activity was implemented by Regional Development  Agency for the Central BiH – REZ Agency and Association of Citizens “NESTO VISE”.
