DISTRIBUTION INDUSTRY INNOVATOR
RESPONDING TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC
Universal Exports, the Hong Kong-based distribution company founded in 2011, has responded to the Covid-19 pandemic by activating our international network of relationships to source medical supplies that are needed by healthcare systems around the world. Our priority is to get required medical supplies into the hands of healthcare workers as fast as humanly possible to help save human lives. Many kind colleagues and other companies who share our same purpose have joined forces with us to support this important initiative. We thank them for their commitment and humanitarian support. Thank you for doing your part as we work together to expedite the procurement, logistics and supply chain - connecting sources of much-needed medical supplies to healthcare systems so that healthcare workers around the world can do the important work of saving human lives.
ORIGINS IN THE F&B INDUSTRY
Since our inception in 2011, Universal has scanned the globe to bring valuable products to clients who need them. We started in the F&B category, introducing luxury liquids to the lips of taste-makers in our local Asian markets. We're proud of our origins as the first pioneering distributor in our region to focus on selectively representing craft artisanal brands from the Americas and Europe. Our past industry recognitions include the "Excellence of the Year / Innovation & Leadership" regional award, named by Le Fonti Asian Awards for "excellence as a leading distributor." Universal was first in our local market to launch 100% certified organic spirits (Crop). First to launch 100% natural sodas (QDrinks & Fever Tree). First to introduce 100% fresh fruit purées not from concentrate and never frozen (FunkinPro). First to launch a premium branded 100% pure coconut water (CoAqua).
When curating our collection of brands, we place emphasis on high-quality ingredients because we care about what goes inside our bodies. We prefer products whose brand stories tell a unique history, and love representing brands whose irreverent personalities and inspired attitudes are absolutely contagious. Several of the world's iconic brands have been successfully represented by Universal over the past years (Bittermens, Cuervo, Ezra Brooks, Fee Brothers, Goslings, Jeffersons, Leblon, Malfy, Matusalem, Pampero, Titos, Whistlepig, Wodka). Our team collectively represents more than 50 years of combined experience in building long-term brand value for our clients and developing trust-based relationships globally across the value chain in the food and beverage (F&B) industries. We work hard for our clients - the leading restaurants, hotels, cocktail bars, clubs and retailers in Hong Kong and Macau - to create an edge in their increasingly competitive marketplace. The key to our longterm success has been, and always will be, you - our customers. On behalf of Universal Exports, we thank you for your loyalty since our inception a decade ago.
First and foremost, we selectively represent craft brands that place emphasis on high quality, natural ingredients. The growing popularity of "Field-to-Bottle" and "Farm-to-Table" is rooted in our customers' search for AUTHENTICITY and QUALITY. We look for brand owners with passion and creativity who put care into their production processes and selection of ingredients. The fruits of our labor are reflected in a carefully assembled portfolio of brands. The common thread connecting our brand owners is this shared commitment to authenticity and quality. We feel honored and privileged to exclusively represent these uncompromised spirits.
Since our inception, our top priority has been to carefully listen to our customers to understand their unique needs. We aspire to serve as their Distributor-of-Choice for unique craft brands that stand apart from the rest of the market. Our award-winning craft brands compete favorably on quality, value, and flavor. Our customers are raving about our popular Funkin Fresh Fruit Purée Mixers -- natural, squeezed from fresh-picked fruits bursting with natural flavor because they were never frozen and not from concentrate. Our customers love Q Drinks, the USA's #1 natural soda that's revolutionizing the soda industry through its insistence on allowing the pure essence of root-forward natural ingredients to flourish with no artificial additives or sweeteners. Each of our brands adds an intriguing history, an irreverent attitude, and a new dimension to your menu.
