Incorporated in the year 1997 in Tanzania, Vinmart is a well-established business conglomerate in Commodities Export and Trading Merchandise. Since inception, our main objective has been to supply essential commodities across African countries like Zambia, Uganda, Malawi, Congo and South Africa, Burundi, Rwanda and Kenya.

Vinmart History & Expansion – The Growth Curve

Vinmart has always pursued a persistent journey and a pragmatic vision, bearing in mind the emerging trends of the world economy. We have included a handful of international and local professionals in our core team that constantly strives hard to build up a strong distribution network and diversify its activities. It was due to the constant efforts of this team that we successfully managed to open up our operations in Toronto and China-Guangzhou in the year 1999 and 2000 respectively. Further, in the year 2001, we went ahead and established our Sourcing Center in Dubai, U.A.E. with a strategic intention of consolidating Vinmart’s position in the African continent and reaching out to the promising markets of Middle East.

Today, both China and Dubai operations serve as the most decisive sourcing centers for a vast range of products, such as mining /plant machineries and spares, heavy & light earth moving equipments, chemicals, agricultural equipments and hardware, building material, furniture, including prefabricated houses, and a lot more. Keeping up with this trend of continuous growth and expansion, we look forward to extending to other markets across the globe in near future.
