Without knowledge no market.

At the end of the Land+ implementation products have to be sold. Or perhaps you already have a profitable product for sale but you are not sure where to sell it? To be able to sell a product additional market research is always needed.

About this service

During the opportunity assessment profitable bioproducts and ecosystem services were identified. This was of course already based on general market knowledge from our experts. It could also be that you have your own ideas about potential products. In all cases further and detailed market research is needed to identify the best profitable product-market combinations and to make a first selection of market segments & channels, and buyers.

FSG’s expertise

FSG and her network of sector experts can count on 15 years of experience in market research for a wide selection of bioproducts and ecosystem services.
What makes us different from others is that our market intelligence is largely based on input from importers. For example, our database of 900 EU importers for the timber sector guarantees that we are always up-to-date in trends and developments.

For years in a row we are also hired by the Dutch Government (CBI) to assist them in their market research in certain sectors.
We do marker research for companies, sector organizations and governments. We also do sector specific technical co-reading.
