ACTIVATING
THE ON-DEMAND
SUPPLY
CHAIN

In the path to achieving true success in standing tall as a true representation of nature and sustainable development of our “From The Farm To The Shelf” eco-system, we want to activate the on-demand supply chain at Connect Hub.

Having seen the global food safety and food security concern raised at this current juncture, it is important that we, as an entity creating value added Agri based products to the export market, control the demand and supply for all exporters we house in DLC Hub. It is of crucial importance to mitigate the abundance of waste in Agri based harvests (post-harvest loss) that has been carrying on for the past many years, especially in Sri Lanka. Therefore, through connecting many farming, manufacturing/processing supply chains, Design Logics has developed digital tools to ensure that all supplies are only made/grown to demand, according to the marketplaces created at Connect Hub. In other words, by doing this, we want to empower small holder farmers, where they can grow, making sustainable farming choices and thereby give them a better price for their crops. By doing this, manufacturers are also able to buy directly from the farmers and process ensuring the highest quality standards.

LEVERAGING
EXPORTS
THROUGH
NETWORKING

As we understand the importance of uplifting the Sri Lankan economy through exports, we also want to create a network of marketplaces that enables B2B networking within the premises. With over 100 manufacturers/exporters signing up in one location, Connect Hub is designed to accommodate International Buyers at this location. A four bedroom boutique villa is set to lodge with modern amenities offering bespoke services in par with international standards.
The main unique selling proposition behind this idea is to create a space where international buyers can gain first hand experience of the products they buy from the exporters and understand brands and product value propositions. Connect Hub in that context creates accessibility to ensure transparency at all levels. Buyers will be able to interact with local exporters using Connect Hub and create their sales funnels within this shared space.

THE
ECONOMIC-

CONTRIBUTE
TOWARDS
THE GDP OF
OUR NATION

Sustainable business conduct calls for more stable economy in Sri Lanka.

Exporting is vital to the Sri Lankan economy and our strategy for a “Global Sri Lanka”. Businesses that export are more productive, create more jobs, and pay higher wages.

Increase in exports will enhance the GDP directly in Sri Lanka thereby generating much needed foreign currency for Sri Lanka.

That is why we are setting a new national ambition, a vision to transform our export performance, raising exports as a proportion of GDP to 40%. This is a formidable challenge that reflects our desire for Sri Lanka to be at the forefront of global trade.

In an emerging economy like Sri Lanka, where formal SMEs contribute up to 60% of total employment and up to 40% of national income (GDP), making them crucial engines of job creation and income generation, with Connect Hub incubations, the impact will be maximised thereby giving more strength to SMEs for better business conduct.

THE SOCIAL -

EMPOWER THE
LIVELIHOODS OF
OUR COMMUNITIES

Almost 60% of Sri Lanka’s population is involved in agriculture directly & indirectly. Therefore, when we say we want to incubate 100 exporters, who are mainly in the Agri manufacturing sector, we mean Design Logics Connect Hub is made with the purpose of targeting “inclusive growth” in the agricultural export sector. 

Involve more young entrepreneurs in the Agri based industry.

Where there is a dedicated hub for knowledge imparting and access to all export needs in the Agri based industry in Sri Lanka, there is always the opportunity to attract many young entrepreneurs to enter agriculture and exports sectors. We want to involve young university students/entrepreneurs in Sri Lanka in Connect Hub, to innovate, come up with novel ideas and kickstart their journey with access to all services, using Connect Hub as a platform that facilitates their needs.

Give the farmer community a fair share through traceability systems deployed in Connect Hub.

Although “fair share” has become and mere buzz word in the world right now, we will become a testimony that put this in practice.
Through traceability systems in place, we want every consumer to know the farmer that produced the product they buy. This will empower smallholder farmers, and traceability systems will provide a transparent mechanism to all stake holders to track if all ends are met equally. equally.

Help the end consumer make more sustainable food choices.

With global consumers all the more concerned about the provenance and the sustainability of their purchases, the Connect Hub offers Sri Lankan corporates and SMEs the opportunity to question every assumption, localise their supply chains (and their energy supplies) wherever possible, and reposition their products and services as responsible and relevant to consumers’ needs. Therefore, not only does the incubator help improve lives of Agri based communities and SMEs in Sri Lanka, it also helps global consumers purchase the right, authentic, safe product off the shelf.

Driving the need for global food safety and food security thereby reducing the
post-harvest loss.

By connecting many supply chains in one location, and catering to an on-demand supply chain as a principal in Connect Hub, we will reduce the increasing post-harvest loss in Sri Lanka. Connect Hub is specifically created to create the demand and then supply to the demand as needed. Using the proprietary digital tools farmers are able to make more sustainable farming choices and grow according to the demand in Connect Hub.
