What is EXPORIUM
Our name is a combination of two words: “export” and “emporium”. The Latin word “emporium” was used to identify a small local marketplace, where our grandmothers and grandfathers used to buy bread, olive oil and other typical products that could not be missing on the table during a family meal. Exporium stands for “Emporium of export” and reflects exactly what environment we want to create for our partners: a place where you can find trusted partners and you know exactly what you are buying.
Our vision is to spread the quality food by bringing people closer together. We aim to do that by helping local producers and buyers in the Food & Beverage industry connect.
We created Exporium with passion as a place our families could be proud of.
A new place for quality.
- search your next business partner abroad that best meets your needs
- list and find certified quality products
- contact your counterparty directly through our secure platform
- knowing who to contact to buy or sell products
- learning the local language to negotiate with people abroad
- travelling to new destinations to find new contacts
Exporium's idea was put together between Frankfurt, Rome, Naples and London.
It all started by talking to food producers across Italy: we listened to them carefully and understood how hard it was for them to export. Despite having great products, some of them were really struggling selling them.
It seemed unbelievable that with all the technologies available today, high quality food products could not be discovered by more people abroad. Hence, we took this challenge on and decided to build a quicker and easier way for sellers and buyers of agri-food products to easily find each other, connect and complete their trades.
Since that moment, we have been on this new journey using digital tools to build a functional and intuitive online platform. And now, we are excited to say that our platform is ready.
We help share high quality food.
We foster trust amongst the actors on our network.
We respect our customers and co-workers.
We grow and learn constantly.
We search for innovative solutions.
We do our jobs with creativity.
We work to reduce food waste and we support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We incorporate honesty, integrity, transparency and business ethics in all aspects of our business.
We are a team of friends who shares not only the passion for food and the love for their roots, but also the experience of having lived abroad. That altogether resulted in an idea of a place where the world could explore the market of culinary excellences, breathing a sincere passion that producers have for their products.
We give our best to create an environment that would truly reflect our values: trust, respect and honesty.
