Company Profile

M&L Distributors is a privately owned international trading and distribution company. Our management has many years experience in the fields of importing and distributing. The basic function of the company is to source, market and distribute supermarket foodstuffs and beverages from both the domestic and overseas markets.

M&L Distributors started out as a small family business in 1952 when the core business of the company at that time was supplying corner grocers and small retail outlets with grocery items.

We have all the necessary experience, knowledge and capital to ensure the success of our suppliers.
