EXPERIENCES - Among the Italian companies internationalized  in sub-Saharan Africa there is Monte Carmelo srl  with headquarters and factory in Battipaglia (Sa). The company imports raw coffee from Uganda "prime", which then distributes to the roasters, in particular, of Lazio, Campania and Basilicata. "We buy the product  in Kampala and then  we transport  to Mombasa in Kenya. From there it begins the journey by sea to Italy. The product is landed in the ports of Salerno and Naples in the average size of 12 containers per month (for a total of 240 tons), "says Giovanni De Lucia, partner. "The contact with traders from Uganda is stable and profitable. Following the visit to Italy of the Ambassador Deo K. Rwabita a delegation has left for Uganda. " Organised by C C.C. ItalAfrica Centrale  it had dealings with the highest institutions of local government laying the groundwork for an even more fruitful collaboration." "Our direct experience - continues De Lucia - leads me to say that Africa offers a wide range of business opportunities and industrial ones. Through structures recognized by local governments and highly professional as the C.C. ItalAfrica Centrale, these opportunities are accessible to all  western companies wishing to address the virtuous path of internationalization. " So much so that with the help of the ItalAfrica Centrale, Montecarmelo srl intends to expand its activity of import of the excellent  African green coffee  also to the Democratic Republic of Congo."
