Organic Brown Rice

Organic Brown Rice is a good source of health-beneficial nutrients such as fiber, phytochemicals and essential minerals. Tradelink has been working with our supply chain for over 10 years now and we have always selected our brown rice from the finest crops.

Brown rice possesses more health benefits than conventionally-grown brown rice, as all certified organic products, and compared to conventional food crops it contain lower levels of agricultural chemicals that may harm health.

The two main practices of establishing rice plants are transplanting and direct seeding. Transplanting is when pre-germinated seedlings are transferred form a seedbed to the wet field. Direct seeding involves broadcasting dry seed and planting them.

Many farmers maintain their fields in controlled flooded conditions to increase grain quality and yields. This also allows them to conserve soil organic matter.

Depending on the variety, a rice crop usually reaches maturity at 100-150 days after crop establishment. Good harvesting methods help maximize grain yield and minimize grain damage and deterioration.

The product is free from antibiotic, insecticide and herbicide residues and chemical fertilizer and TradeLink International works with quality assurance certifiers such as Control Union to check each container load as it is loaded.

Mung Beans

The mung bean (Vigna radiata (L.) R. Wilczek) is a legume cultivated for its edible seeds and sprouts, it is related to adzuki and cowpea. Mung beans have been grown since ancient times and are still widely grown in South America. They do best on fertile sandy, loam soils with good internal drainage and grow during the warm season, normally taking between 90-120 days to mature. Generally harvest begins when one half to two-thirds of the pods are mature (about 100 days from sowing).

Mung beans can be used sprouted, either fresh or canned, or as a dry bean. They taste a little like lentils, with a well-rounded, hearty and wholesome taste which is also fairly neutral and will take on flavours from what other ingredients cooked with it.

TradeLink International sources their beans from the northern regions of Argentina, mainly Salta, but also regions such as Tucuman and neighbouring regions and sometimes from Bolivia as well.

Each order is tested regardless of whether the batch has already been tested and we look for moisture content and impurities as well as pesticides and heavy metals, all of which must comply with the legislation of the country of destination for it to pass our QA controls.

We look forward to hearing from you at if you would like more information!

Psyllium Available!

Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant’s seeds. Psyllium is commonly used as a food ingredient in manufactured breakfast cereals and in gluten-free baking. It is also used as a food thickener, the ground psyllium seed husks bind moisture and help make the bread less crumbly.

Psyllium is cultivated and harvested for its seed and husk, it grows best on light, well drained, sandy soil. This plant requires sunny, dry weather preceding the crop’s harvest, a single plant can produce more than 10,000 seeds! The Psyllium flower spikes turn reddish brown when ripe, the lower leaves become dry and the upper leaves turn yellow. Mature plants are cut 15 cm above the ground and then bound. They are left to dry for a few days before threshing. Harvested seed must be dried to below 12% moisture to allow for cleaning, milling, and storage.

Psyllium has a long history of use, especially in Europe, North Africa, India and China. The U.S. is the largest importer today. Its seed and husk is an excellent source of gluten-free, soluble fiber, has been used by herbalists and traditional medicines for many years. It is quickly becoming one of the top recommendations for people using low-carbohydrate Atkins-style diets. Please email if you would like more information!

Argentine Wheat Flour

Wheat flour is used as a raw material and is a key ingredient when manufacturing bread, pasta or cookies, it is obtained by grinding the whole grain of wheat.

Agriculture is one of the bases in the economy of Argentina, this country is one of the world’s biggest exporters of wheat and wheat flour, with exports estimated at 13 million tonnes. Harvesting of the 2019 wheat crop was at a record level of 19.5 million tonnes due to record high plantings.


The enlarged area sown more than offset a reduction in yields due to dry conditions at developing and flowering stages. After the harvest, the grains are transported to the silos, where they are stored before starting the transformation process.

Once in the mills, the grain is set aside, cleaned and then passed through the mill. In this way, the grain is reduced and sifted. In the next stage, additives are added to improve the quality and then it is packaged, turning it into flour.

Production process

The wheat flour production process has six stages and through them different types of flour are obtained.


  1. Preliminary cleaning of the grains . It is done through air currents that separate straw, dust and empty grains.
  2. Selection of grains . Using screened cylinders that divide the grains by their volume and shape.
  3. Pointing and peeling . The embryo and the seed coat are discarded.
  4. Brushing the surface of the grains . In order to fully clean them.
  5. Grinding . Grains are crushed using metal rollers with rough or smooth surfaces. This is how flour is generated.
  6. Refined . The processed flour is passed through different sieves that separate the different qualities of the flour.

IQF Blueberry Demand


Due to the vastness of its territory, its climatic amplitude and the fertility of its soils, Argentina has the agro-ecological conditions required for the production of high quality fine fruits. With an area of almost 280 million hectares, of which 180 are completely devoted to agricultural production. Argentina is an important actor in the international fruit scene. During the past decade, important investments have been made, incorporating new varieties, modernizing production, selection, packaging and harvesting technologies, as well as strict sanitary and quality controls.

Due to the demand for IQF Blueberries, the best time to negotiate supply is before the harvest where TradeLink can work with you and our growers to secure supply of Blueberries, graded and packed to your specifications. TradeLink supplies both wild and cultivated blueberries. Blueberry plantations cover a little more than 2,800 hectares and in recent years reached exports of over 17,000 tons. Click here to read more on our blueberries.

Raspberry crops cover 300 hectares that are located in the mountains of the Central Region and in the Andean plateau of Patagonia. The production turns 75% to the industry and the rest is aimed at domestic consumption.

We work with a modern plant for freezing fruit (IQF: Individual Quick Fruit) through a dynamic tunnel. Pre-ordering your blueberry stock is a way to guarantee stock and lock in your costs and for the farmer this provides a guarantee that his stock will be sold. From the orchards to your company, we manage every detail of growing, processing, freezing and delivering our Grade A Frozen Fruit. Our IQF Blueberries are inspected throughout the process to assure a clean, wholesome product.

After 7 years of negotiations, the General Administration of Customs of China (GACC) has approved the first Argentine companies that will be able to start exporting peas to China under the phytosanitary protocol established between the two countries.

In 2013 they began to work together to implement the necessary sanitary protocols to get into the Chinese peas market.

At that time, the volumes imported by that country were approximately 600,000 tons. This year, the projection of imports for the campaign that ends in July will reach close to 2,000,000 tons.

In this way, they affirmed that Argentina is located among the few countries that have implemented a phytosanitary import protocol with the main global consumer of this legume and which in turn is the fastest growing consumer market in recent years .

This is a great opportunity for the country where cooperatives and national export companies will benefit and in turn improve the diversification of crops to be produced.

Being a component of modern agriculture that has been practiced in many cultures, animal production is unlikely to present shortages in the near future. Most livestock farming practices have shifted to intensive animal farming, therefore milk and pig production are automated to a large extent and fodder has been purchased over the winter.
Some farms are still using their stock of silage, grain and maize.

However, here we see a stronger dependence on deliveries of fodder based on soybeans and other feed components. Much will be determined by the fodder industry’s ability to produce and deliver in the weeks ahead.

We don’t see a need to assume a large-scale systemic problem, however the main bottleneck is the trade and deliveries of fodder, and the imports of soybeans from Latin America and possibly other feed substances.

To sum up the perspective of this season, for the large part crop and animal production may only be affected by the coronavirus crisis in isolated cases, for example if a farming household gets infected. The situation of food markets should be stable and even harvests this year will not substantially decrease – especially given the poor yields from the two last seasons in Germany due to drought.
