Davis Commodities Ltd.

General Information

We are an agricultural commodity trading company, based in Singapore and specializing in trading of three main categories of agricultural commodities: sugar, rice, and oil and fat products. We distribute agricultural commodities to various markets, including Asia, Africa and the Middle East. We also provide customers of our commodity offerings with complementary, ancillary services such as warehouse handling and storage and logistics services. We are an asset-light business. We use an established global network of third-party commodity suppliers and logistics service providers in order to distribute sugar, rice, and oil and fat products to customers in over 20 countries as of the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2021. (Incorporated in the Cayman Islands)


We source and market the commodities we distribute under two main brands: Maxwill and Taffy. We are also the exclusive distributor of the Lin brand in Singapore. The Maxwill brand is owned by us and is used for the sugar products and oil and fat products that we distribute outside of Singapore. We have an exclusive distributorship with the Thai Roong Ruang Sugar Group, a large sugar producer in Thailand, for the exclusive distribution of sugar products under their Lin brand in Singapore. We have also appointed Tong Seng Produce Pte. Ltd., an established distributor of rice, oil, sugar, flour and fiber products in Singapore, for the exclusive distribution of certain sugar products under our Taffy brand.


We specialize in the sourcing and distribution of sugar products, with sugar products contributing to approximately 80.8% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2022, and 73.6% of our revenue for the six months ended June 30, 2021. Sugar products contributed to approximately 69.6% of our revenue for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2021, and 66.4% of our revenue for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2020. We procure sugar products from various origins in order to offer a wide range of sugar products to our customers in Singapore, as well as in different markets in Asia, Africa and the Middle East regions. We are a member of The Refined Sugar Association in London, which is the trade association for the international white refined sugar trade. We also source and sell a wide selection of rice products and oil and fat products to our customers in Africa and the People’s Republic of China, or the PRC.


We pride ourselves on the quality of our products and our ability to provide a ‘one-stop service’ to customers. 

According to Frost & Sullivan Limited, whom we commissioned in June 2022 to produce the “The Agricultural Commodity Market Independent Market Research Report” (the “Frost & Sullivan Report”), we were the largest sugar supplier in Singapore, based on revenue in 2021, with an approximate market share of 7.5% in the sugar market in Singapore. For the fiscal year that ended Dec. 31, 2021, our revenue was US$194.2 million – up 47.6% from 2020.
