We are Importers and Distributors of Nuts, Dried Fruits, Seeds and Coffee to industries around the world.
Our local subsidiaries, armed with local knowledge and proximity to customers, provide just in time deliveries to Packers for retailers, Confectionery and Breakfast cereal manufacturers, Wholesalers, Processors and Distributors around the globe.
We provide a service which aims to ensure food safety in products, price stability, knowledge of impending markets as well as future demand & supply dynamics allowing buyers to take informed decisions. We also provide credit where needed to ensure customer resources are efficiently managed.
We are not traders in the traditional sense. We have upstream investments in factories at origin countries to ensure increased control of the products we buy. We also have downstream investments in companies where we can add value to their final products.
