EXPORTING ACTIVITY

Urimpex S.A. Stands out from its competitors for its wide portfolio of clients in the 5 continents. The company is a pioneer in exports to China, South Africa, Libya, Morocco and Israel among other varied destinations. We are convinced that we must make known to the world the excellent product of Uruguayan bees and that has been our objective for almost half a century.

Since 1971 URIMPEX S.A. It is among the first exporters in the country. More than 1500 tons of honey annually are directed to the most varied markets. Our know-how allows us to select honey by its color or botanical origin, in order to serve different users and delight all palates. Each drum that is exported has its traceability. This allows to know not only which beekeeper produced it but also which colonies of bees harvested it.

Honey is usually exported in 300 kg drums but some customers require it to be packed in 25 kg buckets. The quality control is carried out in the main German laboratories (QSI or Intertek). For the peace of mind of our clients we have obtained the HACCP certification, through the company SGS.

We also have True Source (USA) and Kosher (United Kingdom) certification. At the local level we obtained the certification of Country Brand (Uruguay Natural). The search for excellence led us to be awarded “Innovative SME” by the GTZ institute (Germany) (organic honey exports to Ireland). Our CEO has been president of the Honey Exporters Association for more than 10 years.

We participate in world food fairs such as SIAL and ANUGA. Every two years we also participate in the international beekeeping fair (APIMONDIA). URIMPEX S.A. Is a member of the Mercantile Chamber of Products of the Country and the International Association of Honey Exporters (IHEO).
