Potential Income per month

Permaculture centre : farm, visits, courses.

Monthly subscription sale of vegetables and fruit baskets to hotel and restaurant grown with Permaculture techniques

+ Visit of permaculture farm by tourists + Permaculture course on tropical permarculture farming (very rare in the world).

There are 74 organic farmers on Koh Phangan. The island has been declared organic island by the King of Thailand in 1994. Many are in need of higher income, marketing techniques. Farming is reserved to thaï nationales. However a partnership can be formed in order to provide marketing, get payments, organize deliveries, after sale, quality control and improvements. The farming is done on Koh Phangan but the sale and the marketing could be assisted by foreigners. The potential is big, all hotels and restaurants want in principle to buy “eco” and “organic” but are afraid or lack of organization and language skill to meet with the farmers and organize. As the farmers are scattered it becomes almost impossible for a normal business without loosing important hours. It is a monthly fee for vegetable, meat is

order 50% at the order and the rest at delivery.

Very small.

 

One company, business cards, a side car.

Estimated profit per basked : margin per kilo on vegetables and fruits around 25THB per kilo. On meat 30THB.

Average order of fruits per month per restaurant : 8 kilos per week = 32 kilos per business, meat 16 kilos per week and 64 kilos per month.

= 2720THB per business per month.

Viable over 14 monthly businesses (= 1.000euros per month) + 300/400 euros per month on visits of eco farms + 250 euros on permaculture courses = 1.550 euros.

First interests on businesses = 6 already interested.  

This without private people also interested to purchase on monthly subscription.
