The base of our work

Since our foundation in 2002, tropextrakt has specialized in importing and distributing exotic specialties and niche products. Our ingredients serve customers from the beverage, food, nutritional supplements, and dairy industries in over 40 countries. Most of our producing partners are from Latin America and Asia, and together, we ensure compliance with European quality standards and food laws.

Located in Frankfurt (Germany), our headquarters also houses the Idea Lab, which provides clients with innovative recipe ideas. From there, our team also runs tpxdrinks, our service for customized product development.

Starting from 2024, tropextrakt became part of the Duas Rodas Group. Founded in 1925 by a German immigrant couple in Brazil, the company is a leading Latin American manufacturer of ingredients for the food and beverage industry. With more than 10,000 customers and a strong portfolio, the group’s headquarters is in Jaraguá do Sul, Brazil.

Corporate values

We stand for embodied diversity

We believe the world can only truly shine in all its diversity, and we draw great inspiration from regional and country-specific cultures. By working within a multicultural team and with producers and customers from all over the world, we experience and learn from cultural differences and similarities. Our daily work is driven by openness, acceptance, and respect.

We work hard to build trust

Good relationships develop over time and are based on trust. This reliability with our customers and producing partners comes from a work with friendliness, professionalism, fast response times, orderliness, and strong service orientation. Internally, we also place trust individually, believing that each employee is doing their best. We work with freedom, openness, and collaborating with each other.

We are growing sustainably

Our goal is to have a strong and consistent presence within the sector with innovative products and ideas. We strive for a positive company growth and a long-term success, not short-term or short-sighted gains. This forms the basis for our day-to-day entrepreneurial decisions – whether they involve our relationships with customers, developing new company divisions, or making investment decisions.
