Who we are
Our team has decades of experience in supply chain management in Africa. Each team member brings a different skillset to the company which allows us to nimbly navigate complex markets.
Our core business is the distribution of fruit and vegetables in Africa. We are the undisputed leader in post-harvest value and we supply a range of grades to all segments of the market.
What we do
The Alto Vida Group is the leading fresh produce supply chain manager in Africa. With over 12 years of experience in one of the most challenging markets in the world, no task is too big to handle. Our largest market is Angola, but we also have significant operations in South Africa, Ivory Coast, Senegal, Uganda and Ghana.
What sets us apart is the fact that we have control over the entire supply chain, from the time produce leaves the farm until it reaches the retailer.
• We provide advice, know-how and seed to local farmers to guarantee a regular supply of quality produce, and we also import produce from all over the world.
• We add considerable post-harvest value, through packaging and processing fresh produce at our state-of-the-art warehouses and high-care facilities in five African cities.
• We rely on the best refrigerated fleets in Africa to get our product to market.
• We supply a wide range of grades to all segments of the market, from informal traders through to supermarkets, restaurants and five-star hotels.
Fruit and vegetables are our core business, but in recent years we have used our intricate understanding of supply chain management and our vast knowledge of African markets to expand into other areas such as meat, fish and even rare African hardwoods. This diversification has helped us to achieve our goal of sustained growth and annual profitability.
