Quality in imports - Fast & Reliable Service

The company KARMI UNIFRUIT LTD was established in March 1995. It started as a small family business which was founded by Mr. Alecos Sophocleous in 1976 and dealt with retail of fruit and vegetables. After almost 20 years and with the experience gained, Mr. Sophocleous realised the needs that arose in the sector of fruit and vegetables and consequently chose to deal with wholesale trade as well, and mainly with imports, to cover the needs of the Cypriot market. The first years of operation were difficult indeed, however through an unexpected acceptance by Cypriot consumers and careful development steps it soon became a leading company in Wholesale Trade of Fruit & Vegetables in Cyprus.


Our company deals not only with IMPORTS, but also with EXPORTS. The exports of local products as well as the import of a huge variety of Fruit & Vegetables originating from countries all over the world has attributed it an international character commercially. The selling policy and targeting of particular customers is mainly focused on Hypermarkets and Fruit markets all over Cyprus.
The company is staffed by more than 40 employees with full specialisation. Since it possesses a fleet of 20 refrigerator trucks, the pan-Cyprian distribution of safe products as well as the timely – fast customer service are a commitment of “KARMI UNIFRUIT LTD”. For this reason we have adopted a strict safety policy designed according to the international standards ISO 22000:2005.


Our more than two decades experience in imports and the commitment to the five main pillars of our success, which are:

1) Customer Service

2) Product Quality

3) Low Prices

4) Reliability

5) Consistency and professionalism framed by our specialised personnel, have resulted in the swelling of our business displacement in Cyprus and recognition by the International Market


Wholesale trade of local fruit & vegetables

The company KARMI GENERAL TRADING (CYPRUS) LTD was founded in September 2010. The business situated in the Municipal Market of Dromolaxia had already existed for many decades gaining appreciation by everyone in the wholesale trade of local fruit and vegetables.

Over time, and while the company had been exhibiting stability, the administration passed in the hands of Savvas Kirlappos, whose purpose was to make the business more competitive while at the same time increasing its prestige.

As a result, in September 2010 it was decided to incorporate the company in KARMI GROUP with the name KARMI GENERAL TRADING (CYPRUS) LTD continuing its operation more dynamically.

KARMI GENERAL TRADING (CYPRUS) LTD deals exclusively with wholesale trade of local Fruit & Vegetables produced within the Democracy of Cyprus.

The company’s vision is to establish its leading role and competitive position it owns in wholesale trade of Cypriot products, while at the same time to maintain the high quality of the product it trades, and the high standard of customer service.
