Cokodeal blog is finally live!!!
It has been an intense but fulfilling journey getting cokodeal marketplace up and running. In essence it is a part of our belief and love for Africa. It all took longer than we thought it would take, as it is a platform designed from scratch codes since its inception in June 2013.
The company is a product of an ardent desire for an Africa that will be the convergent point of global trade and not a continent that is at the mercy of foreign aid. We think that there is urgent need to consciously expose African produced goods so as to change the world’s perception of Africa being a predominantly consumer market.
Cokodeal Limited, a UK – African multinational company is determined to help Africa take advantage of its large market through cokodeal.com: like alibaba.com in Asia. Cokodeal.com is Africa’s largest locally produced commodity export e-commerce site, with presence in Tanzania, Ghana, South Africa, Nigeria, Rwanda, Kenya and Zambia. The company provides an online marketplace where individuals and businesses can buy, import and export goods and services solely produced in Africa.
Cokodeal.com will help African manufacturers, farmers, textile industry, solid mineral miners/traders, SMEs and service provider to easily connect with prospective business partners outside Africa. It will also go a long way to promote intra Africa trade.
We want to thank friends, family and partners who supported cokodeal through their assistance with ideas, concepts, design, network, social sharing and just overall support. And of course thanks to the first customers in 2014 who had so much patience and understanding with the small bugs and hiccups of a new website, as we were working on it and continue to improve it.
To visitors, a big hearty “welcome”” and we hope you find what you want and need in our marketplace, we aim to offer you excellent services and ensure security protection to keep you happy at all times.
Cokodeal.com will contribute in no small measure to the promotion of the African local content which is imperative to the transition of the continent from the third world to first world.
Looking forward to this journey and new adventures in the future.
