FROM PROJECT SOURCING TO PROFITABLE BUSINESS
Sourcing and preparation
Scanning HVA’s vast network of agriculture professionals in EMFM countries, is the starting point for sourcing a project with great potential. On the collected project-proposals, a special filtering and selection process starts and, upon selection, a reconnaissance mission takes place to draft a report for the client on constraints and viability.
If the project is defined as sustainable the next step is to prepare a new Business Plan. Such a plan is of great importance for the development and the success of the project. It forms the basis for the calculation of the necessary financing, includes recommendations for modernization of technology, facilities, and operational practices and finally, sets the criteria for the successful operation in the future period. HVA prepares this success-recipe for the project based on its century old solid experience and expertise.
The next step is Project Realization. This is a crucial phase whereby a complexity of supplies and works will be carried out by a range of contractors. HVA International takes care of all the Project Management necessary for a well-organized project development. This phase, requires adequate planning, supervision, and commissioning of deliverables.
Experienced HVA Managers get involved and make sure that all gets implemented smoothly and on time.
Monitoring & Evaluation
Once the project is fully operational based on the new plan, regular monitoring from the HVA headquarters and reporting to the client takes place as a standard operating procedure. HVA International ensures that procedures and instructions are properly followed in order to maintain production standards, quality, and efficiency as intended.
