Balmed® Corporate Development and Communications
Balmed is a company incorporated in Sierra Leone with business operations in plantation-management and trading of cocoa and coffee. The enterprise started of in 2002 as a trading business and diversified its business fields in 2010 into plantation-management, trade and development. The company has currently 51 employees and buys cocoa and coffee from 20.000 certified small scale farmers in Sierra Leone (Fairtrade, UTZ). Balmed sells its commodities to international clients in the food and cosmetics industry. For my thesis I developed a communications bundle, including homepage, corporate videos, brochures, business cards and newsletters, to ensure a consistent and professional business presentation to international project stakeholders. I am working with Balmed since 2010 as Head of IT and Communications.
