About Us
COGESER is a brokerage company specialized in the international trade of Pulses (dry beans, peas, lentils, chick peas, quinoa, rice, wild-rice and related agro products). The company has been established in 1980 in Paris by Mr. Gerard Serfati, who has been active in our industry from 1969 until his retirement in 2016. Close relations have been developed with first class exporters and importers. Considerable efforts have been made to successfully develop business in the main countries like Canada, USA, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Chile, Argentina, Morocco, Algeria, Turkey, Lebanon, Israel, Myanmar, India, China, Thailand, Cambodia and the European countries. Since its beginning, COGESER is very active in the European and especially the French market. Our international daily presence allows us to collect information from all over the globe. Our role is to continuously gather, verify, interpret and transmit accurate information about fluctuating markets situations, to be present under all circumstances and bring customized service to all our national and international clients. The conclusion of a negotiation and issuing a contract is just the very beginning of the entire transaction: we get actively involved in both contract parties to respect their contractual obligations and rights, from shipment through settlement and beyond.
