GenTrade International B.V.

GenTrade International B.V. for more than a decade, has been a growing worldwide supplier of food and non-food products with partners, suppliers and contract manufacturing facilities worldwide. We specialise in exporting to mainly (but not only) the African continent. This has given us the experience and expertise to always find the right balance in the price / quality ratio of all our products. We have developed a wide range of food and non-food products, specially tailored to local needs, where most items can also be produced under a private label. In the last few years we have been rapidly expanding our client and product base.

Offices and partners

We have our own representative office in Monrovia/Liberia. To be represented there regionally, not only for Liberia but for the whole of West Africa, helps us tremendously in our quest for proper alignment with local needs.
We recently also set up a purchasing office in China, which enables us to control and secure the high quality standards of our products. Clients are frequently visited, the market is continuously examined for (new) opportunities and personal contacts with the authorities are closely maintained.

Logistics and inspection

Our experience in logistics is another factor contributing to the reputation of the quality of our services. Through very personal contacts we work directly with international shipping lines, recognized for their unique expertise and reliability (CMA CGM, Delmas, Grimaldi, Maersk / Safmarine, MOL, to mention a few).

Sea transport is carried out (if necessary, refrigerated) by container or by conventional shipment. We also work closely together with international inspection agencies, safeguarding product quality (BIVAC, COTECNA, INTERTEK and SGS).

Member of a select group

GenTrade International B.V. is listed on the «qualified suppliers list» of International Aid Organisations and NGO’s (non-governmental organisations). These are active in areas where peacekeeping operations have been established or where humanitarian assistance is offered; emergency aid in response to natural disasters, for example.
Through a rigorous selection process we have been allocated to supply a variety of food products to the employees of these organizations on-site.

Markets in motion

Many of the food products move in price along with the global commodity prices traded on futures exchanges in the financial market. Important factors are among others: the currency exchange rates, the weather, politics and the difference between local and global prices.
To remain informed of all market developments we continuously monitor the relevant prices through computer systems with boundless access to financial data and financial news.
