Food Importer

Enhancing Financial Stability and Streamlining Global Transactions for a European Food Importer 

Our client, a prominent European food importer specialising in exotic foods from tropical locations, faced significant challenges in navigating exchange rate fluctuations and the complexities of global transactions. Operating in a dynamic industry, where they bought products in Euros and sold them in dollars, exposed them to volatility in the USD/EUR exchange rates. To address this risk and guarantee a fixed revenue each month, the client sought a solution to protect their bottom line from unpredictable currency movements. 

Fiscal FX’s Recommendations 

Recognising the need for stability in monthly profits, we devised short-term risk management strategies to hedge against the confirmed sale of goods. This approach ensured that, regardless of how the exchange rate moved, the client could plan ahead with the peace of mind of knowing their bottom line was protected. 

Understanding the challenges of the fast-paced food and drink industry, Fiscal FX addressed the complexities of global imports. The team streamlined international transactions by offering same-day settlements to China, providing the speed and flexibility required in the client’s business environment. 

Our comprehensive solution extended beyond addressing exchange rate impacts. We navigated challenges related to logistics, such as the escalating costs of containers and shipping, enabling the client to optimise their global supply chain while minimising financial risks.
