What We Do
We are a sourcing, supply chain and food product development company that identifies inefficiencies and opportunities in the global food product markets to generate value for our partners and customers.
In supply chain and sourcing we look for ways to streamline and extract profit by connecting supply with demand efficiently. In product development we look for opportunities to create markets and products in underserved categories.
Sourcing and Supply Chain
Frozen Fruits and Veggies
Our core focus is our strength of knowledge about the frozen fruit and vegetable sourcing and supply chain marketplace globally. Our strategy entails sourcing an immediate need for our customers and using that leverage and positive experience to win exclusive supply chain/sourcing services contracts with bulk purchasing companies. We are very active in this space and are sourcing multiple IQF Fruits currently for several large companies.
Food Product Development
Unique Products and Categories
We also develop and co-develop unique products with our partners and expand them into entire categories within large retail chains. We are able to seek out inefficiencies that exist in current products, product lines and categories and quickly develop better products that our customers can offer. We have deep long-term relationships with the big retail chains and food manufacturing companies who can scale quickly to make products that we need to serve our customers’ demands. We are currently in development of several brands we have been asked to develop for domestic and international retailers.
We are an experienced team with established relationships across the globe and deep knowledge in Sourcing, Supply Chain, Packaging, Customer Service, Sales and Marketing, Product Development, Finance, Executive Leadership and Strategy.
