REFIN S.A. is located in the city of Samborondón – Ecuador which is a suburb of Guayaquil, country’s largest city and main port as well. Commercial operations of our family owned business began in year 1999 based on the partnership of Mr. Harold Müller-Gelinek (+) and Mr. Bernardo Malo, and since then the company has consistently grown always oriented towards providing premium quality tropical products to our off shore customers with whom we constantly work under long term relationship premises. On the following years, Kyra Kalil Muller-Gelinek and Kyra Muller Malo also joined the REFIN team together with a few experts in several technical fields.
Ecuador´s geographic location enables us to deal with several tropical products such as mangos, limes, plantains, pineapples, malanga, bananas, yucca and ginger, among others. Products are sourced from our own farms and also work closely with a wide number of selected growers allowing us to provide consistent quality products all year-round. REFIN´s tropical products are present under our labels and under privately owned labels, in some of the most demanding markets such as the US, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Mexico, New Zealand and Japan.
We believe that our commitment with quality together with our reliability in terms of product availability, as well as more than a decade of experience in the tropical produce industry, is what really marks a difference, turning REFIN into the right option for world-wide importers, distributors and wholesalers interested in doing business with Ecuador. In recent years we have also expanded our operations to Peru were we have gradually been able to build mangos and avocados programs for our customer base.
