A brand-new Cypriot company is looking for business partners to represent, promote and sell their handmade jams and other artisan food products under a distribution or commercial agency agreement.
A Cypriot company, established in 2015, is looking for business partners to represent, promote and sell their handmade jams and other artisan food products under a distribution or commercial agency agreement.
The Cypriot company is producing premium jams, apple cider vinegar and fresh tomato puree through traditional handmade methods and is supplying high-end grocery stores, supermarket chains, delicatessens and department stores across Cyprus.
The company is located in the heart of Pitsilia region at Troodos Mountains. Their products are made with fresh fruits harvested exclusively from their own fruit orchards (plantations) which they occupied an area of 60,000 square meters at an altitude of over 1300 meters. This is the perfect environment for the production of excellent quality fruits in colour and flavour.
For the production of apple cider vinegar, they use apples which are fermented into apple wine, aged and acetified using the traditional Orleans method, in 225 litre oak barrels.
The jams are also made using fresh fruits from their own orchards with no preservatives, colouring agents, added scents or sugar substitutes. The small quantity production and the ideal boiling conditions in open pots help make the rich aroma, bold colour and characteristically authentic marmalade flavour.
The tomato puree is 100% all-natural, carefully chosen vine-ripened tomatoes with no additives, grown under the Mediterranean sun and harvested at the proper maturity. It is produced and prepared using traditional Cypriot techniques and methods that preserve the tomatoes natural aromas and flavours.
The full product line includes:
Apple cider vinegar, apple with quince jam, pear & pomegranate jam, apricot & white peach jam, apple with raspberries jam, mosfilo (azarole) jelly and fresh tomato puree.
Packaging plays a key role for the company in delivering safe food products. Therefore the company uses glass packaging which is nonporous and resistant and has an almost zero rate of chemical interactions in order to preserve food freshness, strength, aroma, and flavour.
The branding, packaging and labelling reflect to the origin and freshness of ingredients.
All information required to appear on labels can be provided in the official language of the client.
At present, their jams are sold in the retail market in two different sizes. Additionally, the company has the capacity to supply the HORECA Industry (hotels, restaurants, catering).
The company offers to interested partners a variety of trade samples for free to taste and have a true experience with their products.
There is low minimum order requirement.
Additional product information in terms of shelf life and packaging are presented in the attached table.
Finally the company has been nominated for the Great Taste Award which is the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink.
