Published on

Delivered on 4-5 March 2013, this course aimed to provide INSEEC Masters students in International Business with an objective overview of Africa's economic landscape, as well as hands-on highlights and advice on how to successfully engage in business on the African markets.

Africa is not a one-side story. The specificities of the African economies and markets require going through a deep analysis and looking at emerging trends on the Continent.

That is the subject of this presentation, which notably considers the diversity of the African Markets as well as the specific cultural factors underpinning the management of business on the Continent.

Mama Fresh Injera P.l.c. is an Ethiopian business enterprise established in 2003 to offer the rest of the world a unique, indigenous and healthy agricultural food product - locally termed as “INJERA”- that looks like a pancake and is made of cereal known as “TEFF”. ! Mama Fresh Injera company is family business and is a uniquely specialized in processing of the ingredient ‘TEFF’ to a consumable food “INJERA” which is a specialty food item that attracted the attention of local and international consumers. ! Mama Fresh is currently the major injera exporter in Ethiopia, with his shipment of the Ethiopian staple bread to markets overseas significantly rising by the day, especially over the last three months. The daily consumption of Injera in Addis Ababa only is 4 million units. ! Enjoying “unreserved” support from the government for turning an otherwise small-scale business into an industry-level industry over a decade, his weekly export of injera has now hit around 9,000 pieces, with a plan to double the shipment in the coming months when launching an injera manufacturing plant.
