At the centre: Antonino Imbesi, owner and marketing manager of Agrumigel/Sc Foods, with Sumitomo Corporation Foods President Mr. Tajima as he is presented with a picture to celebrate the ten-year relationship between the two companies.
Sumitomo Corporation Foods is a business based in Tokyo that purchases fresh produce and processed citrus fruit from all over the world, which are then redistributed to large Japanese companies.
"It's a sturdy partnership built over the years on the basis of Agrumigel/Sc Foods' reputation and reliability in terms of providing continuous supplies guaranteed by international certifications," explained Atonino Imbesi (in the photo) owner and marketing manager of Agrumigel/Sc Foods.
"On that occasion, me and President Mr. Tajima will meet all clients we supply our raw materials to."
"The programme signed envisages the annual supply of various tonnes of products including blood and blonde orange, lemon, tangerine and grapefruit juices. The respect of commercial agreements is at the basis of the relationship, which is strengthened by the fact Agrumigel/Sc Foods can meet all requirements in terms of processing and quality. Working with Japan also means applying strict specifications, certifications and checks, as the local business culture is inevitably different making the development of business relationships harder."
"The care they put into the utmost detail is staggering and they are always looking to improve their work and outdo themselves. As a consequence, they ask their partners to do the same. I would define the Japanese using three words: reliable, precise and incomparable when it comes to meeting deadlines and establishing lasting business relationships. We are proud about our mutual trust."
"They recognise that we are precise and reliable and repay us for the commitment we put into creating a product that meets all requirements. 90% of our clients are located in China, Iran, Dubai, Japan as well as other Asian and European countries. Only 10% of the products are destined to the domestic market."
