Wesgro Can Help You Build Your International Network
Apart from being a great platform for networking and discussing potential future business, we learned a lot about the market intelligence and consumer buying preferences... This has educated us on how best to package and price wines intended for that market. I thank Wesgro for the opportunity given to M’hudi to participate.
