Offering a Logistical Hub in the Heart of Africa

Wholesale & Distribution

Salvo Grima Group runs a distribution system selling fast moving consumer goods directly to wholesalers and retailers throughout Rwanda in line with the world class standards expected by global brands.

Our operations are based within the DP World Logistics Platform in Kigali and are being run in collaboration with logistics partner Anco Millena, with a network of nine depots, including four in Rwanda’s capital city, Kigali and five others in Muhanga, Huye, Kayonza, Musanze and Rubavu.

Salvo Grima was appointed national distributor for Danone, Essity, and  British American Tobacco (BAT) responsible for Rwanda in 2020.

This exciting new project is part of our Group’s strategy to establish itself as a leading distribution company for Fast Moving Consumer Goods on an international level. Additionally, we hope to enable major global brands to reach new or existing markets more effectively.”
