Originally, Branson's core business was as an importer of textile raw materials into Sub-Saharan Africa, on an indent agency basis. However, due to demand from the market, we have evolved into a Import and Export business for raw materials. We either trade for our own account or act as an independent agent and/or distributor for our suppliers/principals.

Social Conscience:

We endeavour to ensure that our suppliers adhere to internationally accepted social compliance norms and we encourage the development of fair trade practices.

Business Information and Duty Free Agreements:

Should it be required, we can provide business, market, social and political overviews for countries falling within Sub-Saharan Africa. We also encourage and assist our suppliers and customers in maximising the opportunities presented by the various Regional Trade Agreements.
