FOOD SANS FRONTIERES

Distribution, sales and translation services

for the food and drink sector




Food sans Frontieres


Our key role is as agents for suppliers to the foodservice, retail and food ingredient sectors internationally. We also source for importers plus ourselves import, export and offer consultancy and translation services.


Specialists in frozen bakery, desserts, bakery ingredients, breakfast cereals, snacks and other healthy food and drink products, we have however experience across all sectors including meat, fish, equine and pet food products.


We work currently in France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Costa Rica and Paraguay plus Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, across the Nordic region and Latin American too! Oh and yes also the UK....


So what we do in summary is open international doors, manage logistics and as needed other administration, implement multilingual communications and handle account management. Easy....


Translation and Effective Communications

Joanne translates into English from Spanish, French, German and Italian plus to a lesser extent Portuguese, Dutch, Swedish. We also have Persian and Turkish capability in-house. We have long-standing food clients who have entrusted to us over years all their translation needs and with our native translator colleagues, we manage complex projects as well as cross-language proofreading, editing and copywriting.


Joanne, after almost 25 years in this specialist area for government and private clients, assists companies globally to understand how effective communications for their target markets will directly bring greater sales and profit. Every company is different but multilingual product packaging, technical specifications, websites and marketing information, PR, social media, human sales resources, relationships with international customers, agents, partners all are important elements!

Market Development

Since March 2020, we have found out how productive virtual meetings can be with new global suppliers: keeping discussions to the point, meeting the decision makers, avoiding unnecessary, time-consuming, costly and unsustainable travel!

A selection of current key collaborations includes are as follows:

Irish gluten free cereal producer Maria Lucia Bakes

General Fruit Iberica, Barcelona - La Riquita brand of Costa Rican frozen smoothie mixes

Paraguayan tapioca starch producer CODIPSA


Business has obviously also been impacted by Brexit. The company focus used to be helping UK companies to sell around the EU as their domestic market. We are however well on the way to getting HMRC Level 3 Certificate in Customs Compliance, hence able to handle UK import and export documentation and distribution.
