Local challenge

There is a strong commercial case for large national and international corporations in Zambia to purchase locally. Local trade can shorten import dependent supply chains; reduce costs through cheaper local suppliers and transport; enhance local brand perception; indirectly create more jobs; and improve carbon footprint.

Despite these potential benefits, corporations often depend on international supply chains because many local SMEs have not been able to meet their supply needs and trade expectations.

Local solution

This Portal strengthens the relationships between local SME suppliers and large corporations and provides an opportunity for mutually beneficial trade partnerships.

It offers a platform for like-minded, forward-thinking corporations doing business in Zambia to actively engage with local suppliers they can depend on to deliver.

Local SMEs gain access to buyers from large corporations. They get the support they need to meet large order requirements and do business to the standards expected by national and international corporations.
