Don Limón, a Germany-based grower-packer-importer, has launched a recruitment campaign to find people to work as traders for the company through its platform.
The company wants to develop small commercial fruit sourcing and distribution offices across the globe, according to a news release.
“We are looking for exciting new talent with whom we can build a relationship of trust and respect to establish more business units worldwide,” Andreas Schindler, CEO and co-founder of Don Limón, said in the release. “We can provide a platform for financing, administration and risk management, plus we are able to pass on valuable knowledge and experience to our employees.”
The company’s motto, “Think Global, Act Local,” with multiple business units worldwide, each run by three or four people, according the to the release.
Those units independently manages specific products or regions, allowing the business to react quickly to changing circumstances.
“The more a company is able to think small, the more likely it will survive,” Schindler said in the release. “Simply operating a traditional, stand-alone global company makes your business too fragile. To be successful, the management system must be decentralised, including the decision making, and reformed into a ‘bottom-up’ structure.”
The company established an office in Coral Gables, Fla., in 2010. Other offices are in Guatemala, India and South Africa, and the next one is set to open in Egypt. The company plan to open in China; future offices depend on the success of the recruitment drive.
