Our Story

Uchumi Quick Suppliers Ltd. was founded as a family-run enterprise in 1982. From humble beginnings, UQSL soon became a major player in the Printing and Graphic Arts industries in the region. Our founding MD, Ms. Palvi Chandaria, still sits at the helm of the company and oversees our core business as a supplier to the Offset Printing industry.

Our growth is driven by an understanding of developing market trends and needs within the East African region, and UQSL began exploring opportunities in new market segments. 2018 saw our entry into the Food Processing and Packaging sectors as a supplier of capital goods. A strong market response demonstrated to us that this will be a major driver of future growth for the company, with clients in sectors as diverse as Food & Beverage, FMCG, Pharmaceuticals, Cosmetics, Chemicals etc. In line with this, we are allocating considerable time and resources towards the development of this side of the business.
