How does it work ekowarehouse?

It's very simple. Suppliers of certified products and raw materials register and display their product pages according to the registration solutions. Buyers that are interested in buying specific products register and directly contact suppliers of interest.

Ekowarehouse has connected thousand of companies till today and it presents a high rate of monthly visits and active users that goes around 8000.

Its target is made by sustainable certified suppliers that want to sell and buyers that want to buy.

It's possible to find here many products and raw materials used to be sold in bulk or to prepare final products as coffee, coconut milk, pea protein, açai, te, quinoa, plant protein powder, private label but also baby food and skincare products.


Which is the buyer type that visits Ekowarehouse?

Ekowarehouse buyers type are very interested in buying products with certifications that they don't find easily or at convenient prices. These kind of operators are very varied, as companies that need to make products and need to find specific raw materials or which are looking to distribute brands, operators that want to create new products so they are looking for OEM/private label suppliers or retail chains owners.


Ekowarehouse CEO and Founder

Let's talk now with Ekowarehouse Ceo, Sonalie Figueiras because we really want to know everything about her experience within the sustainable market and to know how this platform accellerates organic suppliers sales.

Sonalie Figueiras is the founder & CEO of Ekowarehouse. With over a decade of experience in publishing, digital marketing, organic trade and health & sustainability, she is an eco wellness industry veteran with a keen eye for market trends and a regular on the speaking circuit, sharing her expertise on stages across Asia and beyond.

She's also editor-in-chief of Green Queen, an award-winning impact media platform advocating for social & environmental change in Hong Kong with a mission to shift consumer behaviour through inspiring & empowering original content. 


Sonalie, nice to meet you, we would like to know how ekowarehouse supports suppliers in their process to sell? Can you explain us how it works for a supplier that wants to sell its products and want to find the proper buyer?

Absolutely! At Ekowarehouse, our mission is to connect the organic trade world. We are passionate about creating a safe and secure online platform where suppliers can advertise their entire product catalogue in a very nicely designed profile and receive enquiries from buyers all over the world looking for quality, premium organic products, ingredients and raw materials. All you have to do is sign up and then we take care of the rest- from the best SEO to our email campaigns, we make sure that our suppliers get many great enquiries. We also have many advanced matching algorithms that send buyers email alerts about the best suppliers of the products they are looking for. 


Considering that Ekowarehouse is based in Hong Kong and that the organic market is growing everywhere how's is the situation in Asia?

Ekowarehouse is headquartered in Hong Kong, a famous international base for global trade, and the entry point to China. In Asia, like everywhere, consumers want safe, quality food for their health and for their families so they are investing in organic products more and more. They definitely want to see trusted certificates on the products so they can be sure of the security. 


How asian people consider european products?

European products have a really strong reputation in Asia, they are considered extremely high quality and premium.


What it takes to a foreign company that wants to sell in Asia to enter the asian market?

The most important thing to know is Asia is not one homogenous market- every country is different. Different language, culture and most importantly, different regulations. I think it's definitely worth to attend a trade show in Asia if you are interesting to enter the Asian market. 


According to your experience with the platform are suppliers satisfied about business connections?

Our suppliers are super satisfied: they get amazing online visibility- thousands of marketing impressions a month in a beautifully designed profile, they get highly qualified buyer leads-buyers have to sign up to send messages to ensure we attract the right quality of buyer and the price is extremely affordable- it's like having a trade show booth online 24/7, 365 days a year for a fraction of the cost. 


Which countries do ekowarehouse operators come from?

We have a very international base- our users come from over 100 countries. Some of our biggest supplier markets are Asia and South America and some of our biggest buyer markets are US and UK.


Which suggestions would you give to suppliers  to be succesfull on the platform?

The most successful suppliers do a few things: 1) add as many products as possible > the more products you have, the more visibility. 2) have clear product names and descriptions > help buyers find information about your product easily and 3) answer your messages on time and this is important so buyers feel you are response and available. 

We also have great promotional add-on options like TopSpot so your product can appear first in its keyword search. 

Another amazing promotional service  is the Dedicated Supplier Email Campaing which provides excellent results in terms of product visibility and new contacts.


We are very interested to know more about ekowarehouse suppliers experience so we'll officially invite some of them for the next weeks to be interviewed!

Thanks!


Last answer but not least, in these last years which have been the most requested products/raw materials?

Coconut products, protein powders, superfoods, nuts, skincare, baby food, commodities like coffee and sugar- these are always the most popular product searches. We also have a lot of traffic for private label/OEM products- lots of our buyers want to do their own organic brand. 

Thank you Sonalie, it has been a pleasure meeting you and we anticipate that in the next weeks we'll publish some Ekowarehouse Testimonials stories that will tell us how these suppliers feel by using ekowarehouse, their stories, their experiences.
