Summary

Summary: 
With an extensive agricultural experience, a Romanian company from Transylvania is active in the field of growing cereals, such as rape, barley, wheat, corn, and sunflower etc. A part of the crop production is converted into animal feed (including full-fat derived from soybeans). Owning a modern cereal selection and storage facility with a capacity of over 8500 tons, the Romanian company is looking for international distributors to conclude distribution services agreements.

Description

Description: 

The Romanian company was founded in 1999, in Transylvania and started its activity in the agricultural field by distributing plant protection products, fertilizers, and seeds in its own store.
Considering the farmers’ needs on the internal agricultural market and moreover the market evolution and its requirements, the Romanian company extended its business in 2009, by switching from the simple distribution of the above-mentioned products to the diversification of the activities at another level; thus, the company made some large investments by purchasing performing agricultural machinery and arable land for crop production (nowadays, the company owns over 2500 hectares of arable land and the rest is rented). Along with investments in silos, some modern oil presses have been purchased. Also, by applying for the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development, the Romanian company was able to benefit from funding to build a modern selection and storage facility for cereals, with a capacity of 8500 tons.
The Romanian company is currently growing crops such as rape, barley, wheat, corn, sunflower, but also soybean and safflower. The products obtained are stored in the company’s own silos, where they are processed for impurities and excessive moisture. Agricultural products (wheat or corn) are sealed in 40kg raffia bags; a part of the crop production is converted into animal feed (including full-fat derived from soybeans).
As the Romanian company is addressing both large and small farmers and traders, the company has a team of professionals always open to new agricultural challenges (agronomic engineers) and it is working together with collaborators, consultants, agricultural researchers, plant protection specialists and/ or technical advisors to reach the best quality of products.
Willing to extend its business, the Romanian company is looking for international business partners interested in selling the Romanian crops abroad on the basis of a distribution services agreement.
Thus, the Romanian company intends to distribute its crop production abroad and is willing to sign an agreement with foreign distributors (SMEs) active in the field of agriculture, animal husbandry and/or distributors, importers and wholesalers.

Advantages & innovations

Cooperation plus value: 
With over 15 years of experience in the field of agriculture, the Romanian company is growing cereals, such as rape, barley, wheat, corn, and sunflower. The team of agronomic engineers is working together with consultants, agricultural researchers, plant protection specialists and/or technical advisors to reach the best quality of the harvest. The Romanian company owns over 2500 hectares of arable land designed for crop production. Using performing agricultural machinery and modern techniques, the company owns a selection and storage facility for cereals, with a capacity of 8500 tons. Crop rotation follows the scheme rape – wheat – corn – sunflower. The Romanian company is growing corn hybrids with a high content of Semolina, which is excellent for milling and bakery. All seeds and planting material are under constant control of the territorial inspectorate for the quality of seeds and propagating material; thus, seeds are verified both in the laboratory and the field and the above mentioned national authority issues official certificates attesting the quality of seed and propagating material. The quality and reliability of the Romanian company as a business partner is ensured by a French insurance company for foreign trade - an international reference body in the field of credit insurance, risk management and the global economy.

Partner sought

Cooperation area: 
The partners sought are international business partners interested in selling the Romanian crops (rape, wheat, corn and sunflower) abroad on the basis of a distribution services agreement. The partners sought could be SMEs active in the field of agriculture, animal husbandry and/ or distributors, importers and wholesalers. As the Romanian company is growing corn hybrids with a high content of Semolina, among potential partners who can benefit of the corn harvest can also be the producers of pasta or other SMEs that use corn flour in their daily activity. Depending on its target, the potential partner should buy the Romanian cereals (part of the crop production volume) and sell them abroad (bearing in mind the fact that the Romanian company follows the crop rotation scheme: rape – wheat – corn – sunflower). The distribution agreement is not necessarily exclusive.
