Products & Services

We seized the opportunity to contribute food safety and with partnership with Unilever we are transforming
the farming, sourcing, production and supply of Palm Sugar across Myanmar.

Food is of the utmost concern for everyone in the world. Everyone wants the assurance that the food they consume is completely safe, with proof of traceability to a trustworthy source. The International companies we serve are no exception, they want to buy safe, and high-quality products from a clearly identified source.

Our expertise is sourcing the right products for Myanmar. We work hand in hand with our business partners, manufacturers and suppliers to distribute their products in Myanmar.

Our largest export products are Green Mung Bean and Palm Sugar. For which we are top-rated quality suppliers. From monitoring the seeding process at farms, to shipping out the final product in containers, we provide you a complete one-stop solution for all your food logistic and distribution needs.

Palm sugar is one of our largest potential products as a country with 400,000 tons of palm sugar per year being produced. Unfortunately, this was largely done in poor facilities with no hygiene or food safety. This is where we come in - many of the companies we serve, came to us to help the situation. We seized the opportunity to contribute food safety to this process and due to our partnership with Unilever we are transforming the farming, sourcing, production and supply of Palm Sugar across Myanmar.

Other imports which make up the majority of our business are:
  • FMCG
  • Food stuff
  • Raw materials
  • Sales promotion materials
  • Special lubrications
  • Cleaning materials
  • Medical Equipments
  • Medicines
  • Machinery

Project Partnership

Farmer Training Program
We retain a close relationship to the farmers and do our best to support them

In addition to our importing and exporting business, we are in the business of training farmers.  We are working hand-in-hand as partner with one of the world biggest Palm Sugar buyers toward the traceability and sustainability its supply.  We believe it is an endeavor which will increase the quality of palm sugar produced in Myanmar – raising it up to international standards - and improving the livelihood of Myanmar Palm Sugar farmers.

Our program began in 2012 with one farmer and just a year later, in 2013, it had grown to 170 farmers who have been trained by us and who are supplying us. Our goal is to educate as many farmers as possible; enabling them to produce quality palm sugar that develops into a successful business they can survive on.  We desire to uplift the social safety of the farmers taking them from overworked farmers with crops unfit for the global marketplace and transforming them into educated and successful farmers with profitable exports.

The way the training works is that our technicians build relationships with the farmers and train them along with the authorized collectors.  We also educate the authorized collectors who are mainly responsible for collecting the harvested product and who supply the needs of the farmers all year round.  

We retain a close relationship to the farmers and do our best to support them whether by having research teams going out and conducting extensive research that will benefit them, or by providing teaching tools like posters, educating and reminding the farmers about what they have learned. The secret to the success of this program is the level of integrity with which we deal with all our farmers.  We fulfill on all our promises, delivering what we promise to thereby building trust in all our participants.
