Who are we?

Sabana Limited is an importer of fresh fruit and vegetables from various countries around the world, supplying the fresh, convenience (freshly prepared) and juicing markets direct and through trading partners here in the UK. We are in our third year of trading and developing two new product lines (NFC Pomegranate Juice and IQF frozen pomegranate seeds). These integrate brilliantly with our current business to utilise certain grades of the products we already deal with while taking advantage of a very good opportunity in the consumer market. Whilst we deal with many types of fresh produce, our main activities are in pomegranates and citrus products.

What is the loan for?

The funds will be used to employ an experienced account manager and trader and cover their salaries for approx. 3 months whilst the new accounts are being established (£12K) . Branding the 2 products and funding initial stock purchases as well as the relating introduction and listing fees (£18K) . Obtain and equip office space for additional staff and sales/ordering systems (£5K)

Why consider investing?

We have grown from £120k turnover in year 1 to over £700k in year 2 and we project that this expansion will increase sales to £7m over the next 3 to 4 years across the 3 areas of trading. We are experienced in our field and have working relationships and support from some of the leading producers and service providers within our industry. The founder has been in the fresh produce industry for over 15 years . We have established relationships with some of the best fruit and vegetable growers throughout the globe, enabling us to source and supply certain products that are either, not grown in the UK (such as pomegranates), or out of season (such as strawberries in December). The 2 areas identified for development are both stable in value and growing in sales volume. This diversification will ground the business in 3 different market areas, creating even greater stability.
