  • Better margins; account for by the reduced production costs and better prices
  • Reliable distribution channels
  • Team strength

Aiming to enhance its competitive position Cyprofresh entered into a strategic alliance with the respected SEDIGEP LTD which is Cyprus’s largest packer. This strategic alliance enhanced significantly the position of Cyprofresh and its members and allowed the company to use dedicated assets and serviceswithout the need to invest. Cyprofresh benefited immensely from this strategic alliance which allows it to use:

  • Sophisticated and efficient BRC-certified packaging facilities that meet the standards of demanding retailers.
  • The Sedigep packing plant provides Cyprofresh with facilities for storage, sorting and grading, packaging and transportation
  • Sophisticated technical support and quality assurance management which helps producers meet customer expectations
  • Financial support through loans and advancements to members. Equally, the Sedigep partnership eliminated the need for Cyprofresh to make heavy investments in capital equipment
  • Logistics: storing, procurement, storage and transport
