About Us

Brighton Foods

Brighton International Products was started in 2004, by Paul Rath, who had already been working in international Agribusiness in China, Taiwan and Brazil for the previous 12 years. Brighton specializes in agriculture and food trading, building and maintaining supply chains, and managing risk. Our staff is specialized in agriculture, food processing, logistics, and Customs, FDA and USDA regulations. We have collective experience working in large food multinationals, finance, and logistics.

We specialize in the supply of non-commodity agriculture products and food ingredients. Our goal is to provide unique ingredients and food-industry
supply-chain solutions for our customers’ specific needs – in an honest, open, and efficient manner. We also represent world-class grower and processors of food ingredients, as well as market products under our own name.

Managing Risk

Agriculture markets can be risky – many unexpected factors can contribute to huge swings in price and supply. We aim to keep ourselves and our customers well-informed. We start in the field – because that is where all food ingredients begin! We will share all of our knowledge on growing conditions, yields, markets, and Ag-economics with our customers – to allow highly informed purchasing decisions.

A Direct Link to the Factory

We have offices or representatives in many of the major agriculture exporting countries – China, Chile, Brazil, and Thailand. The key to success as an ingredients supplier is to understand and control all the steps that occur from the farm all the way to our customer’s door.

The Logistics Edge

We are freight experts – we have to be! Our knowledge of global transport and cold-chain logistics allows us to manage a large part of the cost of your ingredients.
