The team of MAP-Expo proudly announces the partnership with ProFound!


ProFound is a consultancy company. From its beginnings as a pioneer in natural ingredients trade promotion in 1990, ProFound has grown into a team of experts in developing sustainable value chains for natural ingredients for food, cosmetics and health.

To quote their mission:

“Local income generation and sustainable sourcing by linking natural ingredients producers to the market”

ProFound assists entrepreneurs in emerging markets in the natural ingredients sector. They help to capture economic opportunities from production to market entry. They aim for local development that lasts: adding value for producers and sustaining local biodiversity.

With their mission and activities they directly contribute to the UN sustainable development goals 1, 1, 8, 13, 15, and 17.

Their value chain development services range from market and gap analysis, business planning, to rural finance and matchmaking. They work in different regions of the world, cooperating closely with entrepreneurs, sector associations and international buyers.
