Brands Africa distributes a wide array of branded FMCG products, exclusively in the formal retail and wholesale trade. Seeing the needs and demands of our selected target market population, Brands Africa has established relationships with the following principals and distributes their products throughout the countries we have a presence in, for onward sales through the various trade channels, for our target market and the masses in general.
All distribution agreements are negotiated with the various principals for either specific countries, or for the whole region that the Brands Africa footprint covers.
Brands Africa prides itself on representing principals with premium brands, that are either market leaders or in the secondary position, with the potential to grow to a leadership position, in the various categories. We also believe in distributing niche products that require a higher attention to detail where we can execute our brand building capabilities.
