More about our product range

Cono Trading - Sustainability that grows

Cono Trading is an agricultural trading company with locations in Switzerland and Argentina. We connect local farmers to global customers who value healthy, nutritious food and demand the best. We do this in two ways. As a division of Cono Group, which includes Cono Agriculture, we are able to source an extensive range of high quality and sustainably grown agricultural products from one of our own assets. We can also source products from our network of growers in Argentina if a customer is looking for a specialty product that we can't procure in-house. As a successful trading arm of the group, Cono Trading exports to customers in over 50 countries. In addition to food exports, we offer a range of supplementary farming and logistics' services, including storage and processing of crops, to both local and international clients.

Trading high-quality pulses and edible seeds worldwide

We export premium grade pulses, edible seeds, and other agricultural products to customers worldwide. Our focus at all times is on the quality, safety and traceability of the products we handle. Most of our crops are grown in our own fields in Argentina in a highly efficient and productive farming operation overseen by Cono Agriculture, with a focus on sustainability. We also work with a trusted network of farmers in Argentina and neighbouring countries to source high-quality products for agricultural trade. Full details of our product offering are available in our product section.

We're constantly adding new products to our range but if you can't find a specific product listed, we'll happily try to source it for you - just give the team at Cono Trading a call.
