Zambia’s largest manufacturing company Trade Kings is increasing distribution efficiency in Africa with India’s leading retail technology platform Bizom
Revamping the supply chain with intelligent retail technology will help the company intensify the reach and efficiency of product distribution, and increase the potential of the company’s iconic CPG product ranges like The Boom Cleaners, Daily Gold, Yoyo Fun Snacks, Swiss Bake, Big Tree and more. Trade Kings is expected to drive higher ROI on marketing expenditure and increase their footprint in the African consumer market by leveraging Bizom’s holistic, analytical retail tools.

Commenting on this new transformation in the downstream markets, Mr. Luxminarayanan Subramaniam, Group General Manager at Trade Kings said, “Trade Kings Group is committed to bringing a good life to every African consumer, irrespective of their financial status. Our partnership with Bizom will help us drive more granular market insights and accelerate our efforts to ensure that our products are reaching every kiosk in Sub-Saharan Africa, at the right time. We aim to leverage their technology in the coming years to aggressively drive our passion for improving lives in Africa.”
The 25-year-old African conglomerate has its vast range of product portfolios spread across southern Africa in countries like Zimbabwe, Angola, and more. Bizom’s retail-focused solutions will assist the company in connecting the entire supply chain across all markets in a digital-first way.
As Zambia’s largest manufacturing company, the ambition and efforts of Trade Kings Group towards uplifting the economy, has been relentless. Trade Kings Group has always been a versatile flagbearer for Zambia’s growth, from providing a good lifestyle with affordable, consistent and reliable products to empowering African lives through employment and programs. Now, with enhanced retail solutions plugged into their supply chain, the company is expecting to increase the accessibility of their products in Africa, promptly.
