Offering a Logistical Hub in the Heart of Africa

Wholesale & Distribution

Salvo Grima Rwanda was set-up in 2020 and 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 corporate office is located at the iconic I&M Bank Building in Kigali, and we operate from a network of fourteen stock points spread across the country, including seven in Kigali in collaboration with our logistics partner Anco Millena.

Salvo Grima is the national distributor for BAT, DanoneEssity, Mars Wrigley and Unilever. By the end of 2022, the company will be employing close to eighty local staff members.

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.”
