JHB was established in Brussels, Belgium 50 years ago, in 1959, as a small family business active in steel exports out of the Benelux countries.
Over the years, JHB developed into a small international group, currently dealing in agricultural commodities, specializing in Trade Development - setting up operations in various producing countries.
For the past 23 years, JHB has been involved in Cocoa exports out of West Africa, and since 2005 we have developed the Caribbean and Central America regions, specializing in 'Flavored Cocoa' exports and distribution to End-Users.
In the Spice sector, since 1992, JHB has also been the exclusive marketing agents for the GCNA (Grenada Cooperative Nutmeg Association), the sole exporter of Nutmeg and Mace out of the Spice Island of Grenada.
Our activity includes programs for farmers' training, collection, warehousing, production, finance and logistics, all through cooperation and partnership agreements with local partners in the producing countries.
Within its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program, JHB implements charitable and Social Business activities. In 2007, it started collaborating with International Friendship for Development, an NGO operating in Uganda. JHB has since then distributed micro loans to poor farmers for Chilli production, especially women in rural areas and has financed training activities. JHB started this as a moral effort to help eliminate poverty by bringing production finance and markets directly to the people who need it most.
Through our direct involvement in the producing countries, JHB can guarantee superior quality of all products, and a very effective contact between farmer and consumer resulting in real 'fair trade'.
