Soly Marché: the expertise of our salespeople – a guarantee of satisfaction for our customers.
SOLY Import has a stall in the Lyon-Corbas wholesale market, the number 1 private fruit and vegetable market in France.
Every day, the “Soly Marché” team offers a wide range of fruit and vegetables, some of which are imported, while others come from France, or even the local region.
This distribution channel ensures perfect handling and management of a fresh product that arrives perfectly ripe, thanks to a human infrastructure and perfectly coordinated logistics.
Founded on a strong rapport and our teams’ commitment to providing satisfaction for our customers, selling goods at the market place combines the expertise of our sales teams with the conviviality of this type of sales which allows buyers to compare the best current deals.
This means we can test new products and obtain the real market price by agreement every day.
