The history of “UMKA-FAMCARE” company started 20 years ago.
Since 1992 the company has been a distributor of baby food. We started our business almost from scratch however during the first year of operation we leased twelve departments in “Detsky Mir” (“Children’s World”) chain-stores.
By 1995 we faced the task of financing deals with the suppliers with our own capital and of setting up our own sales department. Shortly our own shops were closed and we started distribution of goods to retail-shops and chain-stores of St Petersburg and Leningrad region.
By 1996 the company established contracts with the biggest manufactures – such as Nestle, Heinz, Nutricia. At the same time we continued to successfully develop our Russian channels of distribution – especially in Siberia and in the North-West.
Financial crisis of 1998 slowed down the company’s growth for a while however we take pride in the fact that we had fully paid all our commercial loans by the beginning of 1999.
The following decade confirmed that the company’s course was correct, successful and steady. Practically all leading European and Russian baby food manufacturers supply to us. And mostly all of the largest Russian retailers are among our clients.
In 2001 we opened a branch office in Moscow which became a leader on Moscow baby food market in less than a year and a half!
In 2003 we signed exclusive contracts to sell in Russia products of such well-known brands as “Buebchen cosmetics”, “NUK accessories”, “Fructal baby food”, “Heinz” and “Mead Johnson”.
In 2011 the company remained an exclusive distributor of “Buebchen” and “Nuk” brands in Russia and also became an exclusive distributor of a new French accessories brand “Tigex.
The company continues mutually beneficial cooperation with more than 25 suppliers of baby food and diapers.
In 2011 our company opened its representative offices in 16 cities of Russia.
