Kayo trading was formed by a group of independent professionals, each of them highly qualified and experienced in their respective fields of study. The objective of them coming together was to facilitate international trade by offering a unique service to the buyers and sellers in the international market.
At its inception Kayo trading was known as an exclusive trade broker who facilitated credible trading links between buyers and sellers around the world. However with the dedicated vision and forward looking goals of the Founder/Managing Director Mr. R. K. Rajah, the company was able to establish itself as a reliable and professional entity that had a market driven approach catered to the requirement of its diverse clientele. Since its first successful trade facilitation. Kayo trading has come a long way in offering its services to a numbers of prestigious clients the world over.

To support this initiative Kayo trading proposes to work with a cluster of out-grower farmers and certified growers to source the products in demand.
