We are an international trading company, based in Hamburg. We are specialized in the worldwide distribution of a vast range of food products to the cruise industry, hotels and resorts, ship suppliers as well as catering companies. Since 2015 we are proud to be a part of Transgourmet, one of Europe’s largest cash & carry and wholesale supplies players. Founded in 1925, it’s important to us to combine our tradition and values with a modern and creative management approach. That’s how we make sure to provide our customers innovative and high quality goods and services at all times. It’s our goal to give you the best customer experience and make your processes easier by relying on our valuable experiences and services.
Trust, transparency and customer satisfaction. These are the greatest goods of our company activities. Thus we want to offer our clients the opportunity to make sure, the quality of our products meets their needs, requirements and expectations. That’s why we added a brand new, modern and fully equipped test kitchen to our headquarter. This space is especially designed for our clients and their head chefs to try and compare our products and verify if they fit well with their menus and current food trends. To us, innovation is also about establishing a dialogue with our customers and open up new possibilities for them. That also includes coming together for internal and external trainings and presentations on the latest trends in the food industry. We do organize these in cooperation with our partners.
One of the main reasons to work with us is our state-of-the-art logistic system. We have storage facilities for all temperature ranges, i.e. dry, chilled and frozen. In order to guarantee best prices we use bonded and excise stores as well as special veterinary facilities. We are working with highest quality and safety standards, proven by our IFS (higher level) certification and AEO (Authorized Economic Operator) status. Our full electronic warehouse management system (WMS) is supported by barcoding and allows 100% traceability at any time. In addition to handling our own products we offer third party logistics and inventory management in our warehouse and supported by our WMS. Our in-house shipping department takes care of all import and export customs and veterinary documentation.
