Casa Luker – testimonial
Casa Luker is a Colombian producer of fine chocolate and cocoa. The company exports their chocolate all over the world, including to Europe and the UK. They count on Middlegate Europe to handle the transport. Moreover, they also use the warehouses in Zeebrugge and Hull.
Casa Luker was a small family business that very quickly grew into a multinational. The need to invest in larger warehouses became urgent. Luker was looking for a solid partner who could help them with the right solution for storing and transporting their chocolate. Through their network they quickly came in contact with Middlegate.
Luker needed a professional player that they could grow with for the next decades. “We immediately had confidence in Middlegate, a large family business run by Kim Notman. As owner, Kim is very close to the customer and we appreciate that enormously. We deal with people and that’s nice,” says David Brealey.
Luker’s experience with Middlegate is very good. They can count on a warehouse which is large, clean and efficient and which also grows along with the growth of Casa Luker itself. Middlegate continuously thinks along to make their transport and warehouses more efficient. “If you are looking for a partner to trade in the UK and EU, Middlegate is the place to be. They offer an integrated solution and have the right scope, facilities and expertise.”
