The company SIA RBI was founded in 2000 and its main activity is food import and export operations. Coincidence is considered to be the reason to get acquainted with the red palm oil Carotino, and it is starting point for the company to enter into the palm oil industry.
RBI Ltd is a long-term importer of vegetable fats used in the food industry (red palm oil, palm oil, palm kernel oil, coconut oil), cocoa and locust bean. The company has a long-standing cooperation with the Malaysian cocoa bean processing company Guan Chong cocoa manufacturer Sdn. Bhd.
RBI Ltd is Carotino's sales representative in the Baltic States. The company has renewed the retail offer of "Carotino" red palm oil, which has long been known and highly valued in the world.
In 2003, the Malaysian Palm Oil Promotion Council MPOPC invited Aigars Viksna (founder of RBI Ltd) to get acquainted with the industry. After this trip, RBI Ltd starts closer cooperation with several Malaysian palm oil factories and also with CAROTINO.
Since the establishment of the company, RBI Ltd has been engaged in the import of palm oil, cocoa and their products, as well as wholesale, serving food producers in the Baltic States.
Until 2008, red palm oil Carotino was available to consumers in Latvian and Lithuanian supermarkets. The palm oil blackening campaign that started in Europe also reached Latvia and the other Baltic countries, which was followed by the exclusion of the product from the permanent product assortment. At the same time, food producers in the Baltic States began to abandon the use of palm oil in food production. During the last 2 years, we have resumed the retail offer of red palm oil Carotino to Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian consumers.
The belief in palm oil is strengthened by the red palm oil CAROTINO.
In the history of the company, its manager Aigars Vīksna has attended conferences, seminars, press conferences and exhibitions like PIPOC, POC, POTS dedicated to palm oil both in Malaysia and in Europe.
In 2019 and 2020, Aigars Vīksna participated in the largest exhibition of food producers and traders in the Baltics, RIGA FOOD, presenting “Carotino” red palm oil.
