Who We are

Unidex is a family business, born in 1989 from a love and passion for authentic food. Food from all over the world. Our team, existing out of 60 persons, delivers the tastiest authentic flavours of African, Caribbean, Asian and Middle eastern countries to your store. In addition to our headquarters in the Netherlands (Hillegom), we have sales offices in Belgium, the United Kingdom, Portugal and Spain. Besides this, we have our own production facility in Thailand.


What we do

The authentic exotic products make your customers feel like back home with just one bite. We only supply authentic products without an ‘European-twist’. This makes the consumer feel right at home when seeing your shelves. The products give you a throwback to the past, to the dishes mama used to prepare. This makes our products the perfect recipe against nostalgia.

We represent numerous popular exotic brands. Take a look here to see a all the brands we represent.

With these brands, Unidex serves all Dutch supermarket chains and a network of 150 wholesalers and more than 2500 stores directly throughout Europe. All orders are prepared in the central warehouse in Hillegom. We can offer our service for large and smaller quantities, from mixed pallets and full pallets to full load trucks.

Unidex then and now

The history of Unidex starts in 1989 in the bedroom of a young student, who performed a research for his graduation project. With a father in the spice trade, love for authentic exotic foods has been passed from father to son. Therefore it was no surprise that his graduation project was related to exotic food. After his graduation, with his degree in the pocket and many connections in the trade, the brand new graduate decided to follow his passion for delicious exotic food. And that was the beginning of Unidex.

Now, 29 years later, Unidex has grown into a successful multinational company. In order to give Unidex the space needed for the growth that we went through, we have relocated several times over the years. Since 2002 our head office has been located at the current location in Hillegom. Also here we are continuous expanding but instead of relocating we have added the surrounded buildings to our office and warehouse. This way, we have grown from one building in 2002 to three buildings in 2018.

Also in the future we expect to continue to grow. The developments in the field of authentic exotic food are still progressing. Not only our location, but also Unidex, our product range and our network will continue developing. But no matter how big we become, we will always continue to offer the authenticity and quality you are accustomed to.
