Opportunity Exists to Purchase Part or Complete European Food Importer and Wholesaler Business.

The food import & wholesale business has an office and a warehouse space in Sydney's inner city rim. The warehouse site is 4,090 sqm with specialized drive through access for semi-trailers and delivery trucks.

Currently supplying 900 customers Australia wide, there is potential to increase the growth within the business given that the business does not currently supply to any of the large supermarket chains which could be a significant source of additional revenue. There is also an opportunity to expand into Asia with existing food produce licences.

This is a business that would suit a purchaser looking for an interesting and challenging opportunity that will provide access to many premium European brands. In addition, this may be an opportunity for a current importer & wholesaler to add to their stable of products, with a long established operation and supply chain in place.

This food importer & wholesaler business currently opens 5 days a week, with hours as follows:
- Business Hours Monday to Friday
- Retail Store Monday to Friday 8:00 am - 3:00 pm

Lease & Premises
- Sydney-based warehouse and offices:

About the Business
This food wholesaler & importer has been in Sydney for the last 30 years with a proven track record and excellent reputation. The business currently supplies over 600 product lines directly from their European sources, importing and then distributing products to their 900 + supplier chain. Products include dry goods, frozen and chilled foods. Operating from a Sydney site, the premises include office space and a 4,090 sqm warehouse with drive-in access for semi-trailers and delivery vehicles and also features a retail store open from Monday to Friday so the public can shop for products directly from the importer.

With revenue currently in the 7 figure range, this business is ripe for its next chapter of growth under the guidance of the new owner. With the potential to establish a relationship with the large supermarket chains in Australia, now is the perfect time for the savvy investor to take advantage of this opportunity.

Key Points:
- Exclusivity contracts with approximately 40 suppliers across Italy, Spain and France
- Large, chilled warehouse facilities with drive-in, drive-out access and space for around 4,000 pallets
- Quarantine approved premises, adhering to the audited Food Safety Program
- Receiving in the vicinity of 5 product containers per week
- Over 900 customers, approx. 50% Sydney based and 50% interstate
- Premium European products with over 600 lines available

This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a rarely available European food products importer, distributor, wholesaler & retailer. Currently generating a 7 figure revenue, this is an opportunity too tasty to pass up!
