Tradin Organic Agriculture was founded in the 1980s by Wim Rabbie and Gerard Versteegh. A pioneer of the organic food trade in the emerging European market, Tradin was grounded in procurement and distribution for the organic industry and expanded its expertise to the production of semi-processed organic food ingredients. Processing was recently added to our portfolio for further vertical integration of the supply chain to improve quality control and traceability thereby ensuring organic integrity.
Tradin Organic's extensive worldwide network of suppliers, processors and partners makes us a major partner in the organic food industry today. For organic farmers in more than 60 countries of origin we are the link to manufacturers globally. For manufacturers, we are the experienced partner for their entry into the growing organic market.
In 2008, Tradin Organic became part of the international food division of SunOpta Inc., a leading global company focused on natural, organic and specialty foods. With Tradin's inclusive approach to organic food, we are a natural fit with SunOpta's vision of 'bringing well-being to life.'
