Leading local importer and distributor of fast-moving consumer goods, Nectar, has entered into a collaboration agreement with Marco Vella Wines, which focuses on bringing a rich variety of wines to the shores of the Maltese Islands, covering local sales and logistics.
Nectar’s Chief Commercial Officer Carlos Abela said: “We are proud to announce a collaboration between Nectar and Marco Vella Wines that will bring together the unique, complementary skills of each company.”
For Marco Vella, one of Malta’s finest wine experts, with experience in the industry dating back to 1988, the decision was clear. His commitment to make excellent wine accessible and available to the average person and the connoisseur alike has been a key to his company’s success.
However, this success and growth have presented greater logistical challenges. Collaborating with Nectar enables Marco Vella Wines to focus on what they do best, build and promote an accomplished portfolio of wines.
“Marco Vella Wines grew enough for it to reach a crossroads: one road led to the further development of distribution and logistics; the other to outsourcing sales, logistics and distribution to an expert in the industry,” Mr Vella said.
“I chose the second option to be able to focus entirely on what Marco Vella Wines does best – promoting the world of wines. This collaboration will undoubtedly give my company the best future.”
Asked why he chose Nectar, Mr Vella’s reply was concise, addressing the common values both companies uphold: “I know Nectar and its directors. We share many values, such as integrity and a passion for what is right and fair. At Marco Vella Wines we put people before business, and Nectar shares this value.”
On the other hand, Nectar holds the highest regard for Marco Vella’s place in Malta’s gastronomical culture. This joint venture does not only entail growth for Nectar but enriches the company with the quality and passion for products that Marco Vella brings to the table.
Mr Abela added glowing comments on the partnership with Marco Vella Wines: “We are excited that this new project marks another important milestone in the history of the company. We see new collaborations and investments such as this as the key to strengthening Nectar’s position on both the retail and foodservice markets, while providing further diversification for the company.”
Nectar and Marco Vella Wines are a natural match with complementary skills, resources and values. Both parties look forward to a bright future through this collaboration.
