The company was formed in 1991 and incorporated in 1994. Though originally an importer into the UK ,  our sales are international now, with strength through Europe, Scandinavia and as far afield as Australia and China. We stand apart from our competitors by the vast range of product we distribute, and our commitment to quality control and food safety, we are BRC certified. Our policy is to work with the best factories and develop long lasting business relationships on a win/win basis. In many cases, these relationships are already on their second generation.  We are a small but efficient structure with 16 people ( 7 traders ) in a large open plan office in the wonderful city of Edinburgh. Welcome to our world.

The Value we add

We supply not only food commodities but also bespoke ingredients, quality control paperwork, logistic expertise, chilled distribution and storage. We generally hold £12m of stock. We offer very complete information about the products we sell and the factories where they are produced.  You can trade with us in English, Spanish, German, Mandarin, Hindi, Japanese or Taiwanese. We offer market information and weekly general trading conditions updates in video form in our News section below.

Experience and Innovation

As a company we have a good track record of success. In 2013 we were selected for Invertec’s top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK, as well as in the top 30 for growth in International sales by the Sunday Times and HSBC’s Fast Track Ranking. We were the company who introduced Goji berries from China to the mainstream European market. We are interested in working on new product development and contribute to the development of the products we sell.
