The Sinowei team are experienced international food & beverage traders, with a strong focus of selling into China. The team are based in China, Malaysia, UK, Ireland and USA.
We are building a cross border B2B market place which showcases food & beverage products from around the globe. The Sinowei platform will be accessible on all Chinese social media especially via smartphones on WeChat. The platform will be deployed and managed from Shanghai to ensure no restrictions are presented by the tech firewall around China. The Sinowei team are connected to and engaging with a network of Chinese buyers eager to connect with suppliers from outside of China. We understand how B2B (Business to Business) trading works in China and can ensure producers win and execute business contracts into the country.
Our objective is to create a company which focuses on connecting Chinese companies to opportunities in the UK, Ireland and Europe. This may include investments into UK / Irish companies, and/or joint ventures, and/or tourism and/or trade and/or technology transfers and/or educational facilities for Chinese students.
Whichever sectors that the Chinese delegations would like our team to focus on - we can deliver successful round table meetings with governments, public and private bodies, companies and individuals. We can manage investments, conduct due diligence on target investments, organize shareholder agreements and represent the investor going forward.
