  • Summary:
    A Danish importer and retail company that specialises in organic foods is looking for producers of organic nuts to act as a distributor on their behalf on the Danish market - selling both, other brands and private label. Specifically, the company is looking for certified organic only almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts, cashews, macadamias, pistachios and pecan nuts.
  • Description:
    The Danish import and retail company was established in 2014 and specialises in organic foods, targeting Danish consumers directly. The company focuses on high quality and fair prices and has a focus on environment and personal health.

    The company has built a customer base by selling high quality olive oil and is now looking to expand their product range with different types of organic nuts. They are particularly looking for the following organic products:

    • Marcona almonds, 12-14
    • Valencia almonds, 12-14
    • Walnuts, light and halves (LH)
    • Piemonte hazelnuts, 13/15 mm
    • Roasted Piemonte Hazelnuts, 13/15 mm
    • Macadamias, style 4L (13+ mm - premium halves)
    • Cashew kernels, W320
    • Pecan nuts, medium halves
    • Roasted and salted Pistachios in shell (caliber 18-20 or 20-22)
    • Raw Pistachio kernels (without shell)

    The company is not interested in products which are not organic certified with no reputable documentation.

    They are offering a distribution agreement for the Danish market. If the products can be packaged from the producer or supplier in 1 kg bags with private labels, this would an advantage, but not a demand. The company can also handle bulk orders and repackage themselves.
Partner Sought
  • Type of Partnership Considered:
    Distribution services agreement
  • Technical Specification or Expertise Sought:

    The company is only looking for the products specified including Marcona and Valencia almonds, walnuts, Piemonte hazelnuts, both raw and roasted, macadamia nuts, cashew kernels, pecan nuts and raw and roasted pistachios.

    All products supplied must have organic certification. Stating that the products are grown in the countryside or in unspoiled nature is not an acceptable compromise. If there is no documentation from an accredited and reliable agency, the product is of no interest.

    Due to import restrictions and difficulties with these products, the client is only looking for European suppliers.

    Partners must be reliable suppliers of organic nuts. It would be preferred if the supplier has experience of operating with international clients and can provide 1 kg packaged (preferred vacuum packed) bags deliveries.

    The client does not want approaches from agencies, or suppliers outside the EU.
