Established since 1991 we started as commodity traders working with dried fruit, nuts and seeds. Today we have a daughter company in China and partnerships in Turkey, South America and California.

We supply not just food commodities but also specialist ingredients, quality assurance, logistic expertise, chilled distribution and storage. You can trade with us in English, Spanish, German, Mandarin, Hindi, French, Japanese or Taiwanese.

A quarter of our sales are organic and we carry an extensive FLO Fairtrade range. We travel the world in search of exotic food ingredients for new product development.

We are always working on new and interesting things, check out the Freeworld News section to see what we are currently up to.

In 2013, we were named as one of Investec’s top 100 fastest growing companies in the UK, as well as being placed 26th in the UK for growth in international sales by the Sunday Times and HSBC’s Fast Track Ranking.
