Commtrade International Beginnings, History and Service Offering
Driven by a passion for quality produce and a love of International trading, Commtrade International was founded by Scott Evans in 2005.
Scott commenced his career in banking before entering the international commodity trading business in 1987, developing a strong passion for international trade and a talent for building a solid bridge between supplier and customer.
In 1994 Scott commenced with the family business Game Farm, a fully integrated producer and supplier of quality table game and specialised poultry. Under Scott's guidance and management Game Farm expanded rapidly to be the largest game bird producer in the Southern Hemisphere. This coincided with the introduction of Game Farm branded products to the international market. In 2005, Game Farm was purchased by Scott and the Management team from the 1st generation founders.
Having grown the domestic business into a fully integrated primary producer and then having successfully launched the brand into the export market, Scott recognised the challenges that other specialised Australian primary producers may face when looking to export their quality brands overseas - especially if they have limited or no experience in international markets. Having been exposed to many great producers and companies at various Agri-Business and industry events it was clear that whilst they are all extremely passionate, hardworking and produce quality products, very few had the knowledge or connections to confidently expand their sales offshore. Thus, Commtrade International was established.
Today, Commtrade International has extremely strong and well established alliances with experienced and specialised food importers and distributors across the Middle East (Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Jebel Ali) Cambodia, Hong Kong, Japan, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore Thailand and Vietnam.
Thanks to a vast network of boutique producers from countries including Australia, South America, China, Japan and South Africa our range of quality proteins and food related products are supplied into not only mainstream and gourmet retailers but also 4-7 star hotels, restaurants, cafes, caterers, shipping companies and airlines.
Commtrade takes full financial responsibility for all the brands we represent. Commtrade places monthly orders directly with the local Australian producers / suppliers, and pays all supplier invoices. Further, Commtrade adds a margin to the purchase price and markets / on sells to their export client base, offering payment terms to approved export customers to assist them in managing their cash flow.
All international shipping logistics, insurance, marketing and export sales is managed by Commtrade, leaving the producer the peace of mind to fully focus on producing a quality product whilst building the brand together.
We strive to continue to be the best channel of quality fresh produce to our existing markets with a desire to build upon and expand our current international markets.
