  • Sector information

    Wholesale trade in Cuba is the activity of sales of nationally produced or imported merchandise destined for producing entities, retail or wholesale traders, industrial and institutional consumers, and non-state forms of management, with priority to cooperatives. As part of the assurance of the activity, there is a wide network of warehouses (including refrigerators) that are distributed throughout the country and constitute part of the resources that intervene in the existing supply chains in internal trade. For the management of business in the sector, the Mercantile Society ALBUS SA is in charge of the realization of projects that are aimed at ensuring, as a priority, the wholesale distribution of widely used products and of the families of domestic and imported products most in demand in the country, in addition to developing supply markets that sell at wholesale prices and provide services to the state sector and non-state forms of management.
