Socimex, established in 1998, is a giant importer and distributor of basic necessity products.
We supply the Democratic Republic of Congo with basic food commodities such as rice, sugar, iodized salt, and preserved and frozen foods. Our commercial network spreads throughout the country, with outlets in Bandundu, Orientale, Katanga, Equateur, and Bas-Congo. Our panoply of products includes great brands that have accompanied Congolese families for more than two decades such as Lion, La Couronne, Africa Queen, Anny, Rio, Bravo, and Exeter. Our commitment and contribution to the Congolese community throughout our journey have made us one of the leaders in the staple sector.
At Socimex it is our mission to contribute to the country’s food security at the best value for money. Our renowned motto, La qualité, c’est notre souci is at the heart of our core values whereby high-quality standards and integrity in dealing with our customers are our valued traits.
We are committed to overcoming the nation’s supply chain challenges to expand throughout Congo in our effort to fight poverty and nurture the skills of the Congolese workforce. We are confidently broadening our coverage to provinces that are not already covered by our national scope.
We aspire to partner with government bodies and fellow companies in the sector to shape modern agro-production policies and strategies to become a self-sustaining food environment, replacing imported goods with locally grown and processed food.
Congo’s needs are best served by our veteran personnel. Our staff is close-knit with Congolese consumers to closely monitor their needs and preferences. With integrity, constant training, and high ethical values, our staff works relentlessly to enhance the lives of Congolese citizens by delivering affordable, nutritious products for everyone across the nation.
