Export to tourist areas
Every year, millions of tourists from Sweden and the Nordic countries travel to warmer regions. With this wave of people also comes a great demand for goods from the Scandinavian countries.
The local food culture is of course most important during the holidays, but many also long for good coffee, some well-known sweets and snacks, crispbread, etc.
Litchi Foods AB as coordinator
Litchi Foods is the coordinator of Swedish / Nordic food exports to the tourism industry in various parts of the world.
In our work, we ensure that all stages work for an efficient
distribution from food producers to wholesalers, department store chains and hotels in the tourist markets.Litchi can today offer products from 25 different Scandinavian suppliers. We deliver to classic tourist areas such as Crete, Rhodes, Gran Canaria, Mallorca, Tenerife and Cyprus.
Litchi Foods is perhaps the only one that can offer such a wide range of, above all, Swedish food products to wholesalers and hotels in tourist areas in several different countries.
The goods end up in shops and hotels
The goods end up in local shops in the tourist resorts. For efficient distribution, Litchi Foods delivers to wholesalers who distribute locally. The goods reach their target group here and are bought by the holiday-celebrating Scandinavian tourists.
For the foodservice sector, we deliver directly to larger hotels.
Litchi FoodService AB is founded. The idea is to bring the market a more efficient distribution solution of food and the company will soon focus on distribution and sales of Swedish food abroad.
The pilot customer will be the tour operator Fritidsresor with its Blue Village facilities.
From previously delivering directly to small shops / hotels, the company now focuses on delivering mainly via local wholesalers, which means greater volume per delivery and a better local distribution network.
Our company celebrates its 10th anniversary and at the same time takes the opportunity to shorten the name to Litchi Foods AB. We have a broad Scandinavian product portfolio and a steadily growing distribution network. Through our wide range of products and efficient distribution, we are the perfect solution for the local wholesaler.
The first foreign subsidiary is started up in Greece, our largest market, with offices in Chania.
Our Greek subsidiary is starting up an online shop that caters directly to consumers in Greece and Cyprus.
Litchi Foods AB is today owned by 14 different Swedish companies and private investors with experience in food and tourism.
