About Central International Company, LLC

About Central International Company, LLC

Central International Company's story began in 1984, as a DBA of Central Beef Company-the largest U.S. importer of beef and lamb from Australia and New Zealand at the time. CIC quickly flourished into a major exporter, initially handling meats into the Caribbean.

In 1997, Del deVos acquired full ownership of CIC, and Central International Company, LLC was formed. It wasn't long before the company recognized the need for greater product diversity. In time, we expanded our exports to include a variety of meats as well as premium dairy goods, canned items, salvage products, and more.

The Future

When it comes to the road ahead, CIC's goals are simple: we will continue to help our customers grow their businesses by offering an ever-growing product portfolio at competitive pricing, providing time-saving support, and facilitating fast and reliable shipments. As well, CIC aims to optimize its processes with the latest available technologies in order to continually raise the bar for efficiency and cost effectiveness.

CIC primarily serves customers in the Caribbean, South and Central America, Mexico, and the Far East. However, our export capabilities extend to locations worldwide, and we welcome new business opportunities. Contact us today.

Our People

We're proud of the fact that most of CIC's employees have been with us for the duration. Celebrating 10, 20, and even 30-year anniversaries is not unusual! What does this mean for you, our customer? You'll always work with the same person-not a random voice over the phone. It also means that our traders have unmatched knowledge of overseas market conditions and trends. No matter what you need, you can rely on CIC to source it for you quickly, and at the best possible price.
