Registered in Seychelles under British law, with our headquarters in London and South America, we are devoted to foreign trade as our main activity.

South Atlantic Holdings Ltd Group, with 13 plants in Brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Dominican Republic, is also associated to other plants, mills and refineries and agricultural cooperatives.

We sell from and through our South American representative trading office and Dpmt, responsible for all our Group sales and trading operations, on C+F and CIF basis. We sell our commodities and Group productions as our trading priority. It all started 30 years ago in a 50/50 % association and partnership with very well known and traditional trading houses, mainly in Europe, which helped us to sell our items using their strong trading estructucture and finantial power. Some of these companies are not active in the market anymore.

Governance and Principles

South Atlantic Holdings Ltd company's purpose is to serve our mills and clients by marketing and selling all our Group production worldwide, preferably on C+F or CIF basis, with some few restrictions for certain destinations.

Although most of our clients are final users and consumers, we also sell to resellers, wholesalers or distributors. We also welcome serious inquires coming from professional brokers or agents, provided international rules and norms are respected.

As much a possible, we try to enter in government business and international tender business. We are constantly open to develop long-term partnerships with new counter parties worldwide, provided first mutual trust and credibility is established.

Today's World Scenario

It is well known that EEC and USA markets, as well as other areas, are each day more protectionist, even more now that UK is practically out of EEC.

Of course, without disregarding these markets where we regularly sell, we try concentrate and develop in new emerging promissory markets and new buyers.

Emerging markets – particularly Latin America, Asia, and some Arabic and African countries – are expanding and attracting an unpreceded volume of investments, offering business opportunities in several fields, as natural and unlimited source for agriculture products, raw material and commodities in general, where South America plays a especial role in foreign trade , especially for raw materials and soft commodities.

Product Lines & Departaments

Our export products are supplied mainly from our own group mills and refineries, as well as from other associated mills, when necessary and approved by our group.

Each of our product lines are traded by separated Departments and Divisions within our South Atlantic structure, according to each market requests.

Our pricing policy obliges a minimum quantity per shipment, necessary for each port and item in order to benefit our buyers with the best possible freight rates, guaranteeing the most competitive C+F or CIF prices, considering that the freight element may strongly affect final prices to our buyers.
