Who are we?
PRIMAMUNDO is a wholesale trade company that has been active in the Potato, Fruit and Vegetable sector for decades.
By working with different sites spread all over Belgium, we are able to offer a tailor-made service to all our customers. Thanks to this spread we are able to play on our strengths to maximum effect: flexibility, quality and sustainability.
With a generated annual turnover of EUR 175 million we can safely say that our market share in the Potato, Fruit and Vegetable sector is increasing year after year.
A motivated group with expertise and experience that goes in search of opportunities, innovations and top products of the highest quality every day. PRIMAMUNDO is the group name of the companies Coccinelle, Van Lier, Thiry Gent, Bouvry Brugge. By combining the strengths of these companies, PRIMAMUNDO is the primus in distribution, import and export of fresh fruit and vegetables.
Sustainability is an important aspect in our society in 2017. The PRIMAMUNDO group wants to contribute to this as well. Sustainability is the future and a continuous process with three central pillars: environment, employees and society. How do we deal with this as a group? Everything starts at the source, including our way of conducting sustainable business. We only work with producers who meet certain requirements concerning the work process and working conditions of their staff. Only producers who meet our requirements come into consideration. We assume our full responsibility in the context of an eco-friendly distribution in which transport is an important issue. And at different sites we try to generate green energy with solar panels.
The PRIMAMUNDO group and its different sites have the necessary certificates to profile themselves as your partner for fruit and vegetables.

Mission & Vision
In a world that does not stand still, where there is a demand for high-quality and sustainable products and services, we want to offer an added value in the fruit and vegetable sector. With regard to our customers, their consumers and in co-operation with our producers and suppliers.
"Satisfied customers who trust us and want to buy sustainable fruit and vegetables."
In the broadest sense of the word.
Our quality at least meets the expected requirements for every quality layer. We do what we say and we say what we do relating to product, service, price and sustainability.
We offer every customer a personal service that amounts to more than just selling a product.
We are specialists in what we do and we will continue to grow. We are proud of our brands, banana ripening and cutting facilities.
We have different sites to ensure we are close to our customers. This benefits the service and energy balance.
We take into account ecological (production method, power consumption, food waste, etc.) and social aspects (our employees and partners). We seek a long-term collaboration with our producers in which they are also able to develop.
We buy and sell fruit and vegetables with a focus on what our customers and their consumers expect. This is our core business.
