A Taste of Home
KM Imports was founded by Khalil Mohammed and his wife, Zenifa in 1994. Realizing that there was a lack of traditional snacks from back home they decided to import their first shipments of Trinidad-style preserved fruits.
They then expanded to tropical sugar confections, chocolate, other snacks, and eventually landed their first major distribution with Solo Beverages.
As time went on, KM Imports Inc. built a solid basket of products and brands, such as Chief Brand Products, Peardrax, and many more such as, Pure Caribbean, and Lion's baking powder.
Beyond the amazing creations from our staple brands we now carry product lines from over 20 manufacturers and producers in from the Caribbean, giving Canada the greatest variety of West Indian products they've ever seen.
To continue the innovation, KM Imports Inc. developed its own brand of high quality foods in 2015 under the name Amita Products. They began with household staples such as sugar, rice, and cooking oil.
The successful line of products can be found in large retailers such as Loblaws and No Frills.
Vision for the Future
Today, KM Imports Inc. continues to be family-run, honouring the legacy formed by Khalil back in 1994. We continue to support the local community as our way of giving back to where we now call home.
KM Imports Inc. is committed to bringing the Caribbean experience to Canada through food.
KM Imports Inc. and Lue & Perez have partnered together to bring locally harvested, locally grown, and locally produced products from Trinidad & Tobago. Both our companies believe in supporting local farmers, growers, and producers to promote and distribute products that showcase the vibrant culture nurtured back home. Our vision is to ensure these products become household names while supporting micro-economies in Trinidad.
