SIM belongs to a business group that, for more than 5 decades, has been operating in several markets and activity areas. It was founded in 2005 to implement a very high quality coffee production project to meet the Asian fast growing market. Therefore, SIM built a new factory site with the best technology, a modern and fully equipped laboratory and cupping room for daily tests, designed to be the most modern coffee factory in Asia. Macau is considered to be the appropriate location for the site, with a very convenient port, close to the most important coffee consuming countries in Asia. Macau is also a natural gateway to China once it benefits from the CEPA preferential treatment.
