  'ALEC International' was founded by Dutchman Mr. Bart van Rijt in 2009. The setup of his own trading business is not out of the blue as his parents had a trading business in European charcuterie (e.g. Belgian patés, Spanish and Italian dry-cured hams). The products were sold in The Netherlands, Belgium and the Caribbean. Already from his childhood years on he visited business relations and trade fairs in entire Europe.
Bart's education at institute for the meat industry (SVO) was a logical continuation. After graduating, he studied Spanish in Barcelona -Spain- and went on to complete several internships in the Spanish charcuterie industry. Upon returning to The Netherlands, he started working for the family business. With his Spanish language skills, product and culture knowledge he expanded the product portfolio to include Spanish ceramics and Mediterranean specialties (e.g. olives, olive oil, roasted bread, sauces and tapas). Bart also began facilitating exports to Latin America which quickly became his favorite holiday destination.
Three years after external take-over of the family business Bart resigned and went on a Sabbatical year in South America. After returning he worked one year at a Dutch 
trading business of food products (e.g. Chinese garlic, frozen French fries and Dutch agro like onions and potatoes). In 2009 the time was ripe to found 'ALEC International', a tribute to his passion for food, international trade and Latin America. With focus on Agro products like onions, garlic and beans.

At a business travel in 2013 Bart met his wife in Paraguay. Since then he commutes between the Netherlands and Paraguay, where the product range 
got extended with chía products and sesame seeds.
