In 2014, Mercanta’s Grant Rattray traveled half-way around the world to open our Singapore office, and we haven’t looked back since.
In contrast to most other coffee suppliers working in Singapore, we don’t store our coffee at the quayside in a commodity warehouse. Instead, we partner with a Grade A food warehouse that handles high value food stuffs. The facility offers ambient, air-conditioned, chilled and frozen storage and is highly automated and secure. The coffees that we source and supply should be considered valuable and perishable fine foods, and we believe that giving extra care and attention to their storage protects their quality and extends freshness for our specialty roaster clients.

Mercanta Asia keeps going from strength to strength and we are proud to be able to offer a full service with timely and efficient deliveries to all our clients across Asia.
Here’s the latest news about what Grant’s been up to!
