Brazfoods was started by two friends who met while doing their MBA studies at IE Business School in Madrid, Spain. One of them, a Kuwaiti contractor who’s very familiar with the South American market and the other a Brazilian with a strong experience in agriculture and shipping. They made the most of their experiences to create a business that meets the needs of one market with the offerings of the other.
Now, Brazfoods brings the Amazon’s most exotic fruits to the MENA (Middle East and North Africa) and Turkish markets. Our products are carefully picked to suit the local tastes and needs and our producers are handpicked to assure quality excellence.
The company’s distinguishing feature is its head offices in Brazil and Kuwait. This helps facilitate communication, speed negotiations, ease the selection of the best products, and an overall market understanding to bring the best product from Brazil to the region. We like to say that we work as if we are reaping straight from the nature and delivering directly to the dining table of our consumers.
Our major focus is the sales of Brazilian exotic fruits. Based in Kuwait, where our products are sold in over 50 stores nationwide in under a year and a few customers in neighboring countries, we are ready to increase presence and enter other markets.
The Brazilian fever that has won the heart of North Americans and Europeans is now landing in the Middle East.
