June 25, 2019 - June 26, 2019

The ITC SheTrades in the Commonwealth project, funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID), is organizing a 2-day workshop on packaging for Shea beauty products.  The workshop is for Women entrepreneurs active in the shea beauty products and willing to improve their packaging to differentiate their products and enter new market places.




Poor packaging and labelling is one of the main reasons for the failure of locally manufactured products to compete favourably with imported ones. Improving packaging will help you better protect your product, improve the perception by customers, strengthen your brand, enter new market places, and ultimately improve the competitiveness of your company and increase your market shares.

The objective of this workshop is to provide guidance to women-owned companies in the Shea beauty sector on appropriate packaging systems contributing to improve their efficiency, profitability and the sustainability of their business. This training will mix packaging knowledge and good practices with tools and methodologies on how to improve your packaging system.
