Kwek Sum Chuan

Company Profile

KWEK SUM CHUAN PTE LTD (KSC) is a well established importer & exporter of fresh produce in Singapore. Founded in 1968 by Mr. Kwek Sum Chuan, we were the first independently-owned wholesaler in Singapore to operate along the corridor (冷房旁) of the cold storage facility in Teck Guan Street.

During the 1970s, Mr. Kwek pioneered the concept of “buy/sell direct” to gain a comparative advantage over the rest. KSC bypassed the traditional foreign-based commission agents (洋行) and imported directly from overseas sources such as the USA and Australia. This revolutionary move enabled us to be the first to export to the overseas market in East Malaysia (Sarawak and Sabah)
and Brunei, without having to go through the then powerful local exporting house (九八行).
