Chanrai family, a 150 year old business group established their roots in West Africa in 1890. Fareast Mercantile Group is the flagship group of companies engaged in distribution of FMCG products- edible and non-edible, Pharmaceuticals and Appliances from the leading multi-national brands. A product portfolio comprising over 1000 SKUs is managed by a strong team of professionals supported by robust infrastructure and word-class Information Technology (IT) solutions. The Group diversified in early 2000 into assembly of Appliances including Refrigerators, Freezers, Air-conditioners, Cookers and the like, and further enhanced its manufacturing capabilities into production of Soaps and packaging of Food items.

The Group‚growth has been fueled to a large extent by the focused investment in systems and processes, backed by industry leading IT solutions. These solutions today support the entire range of business functions including SFA, Supply chain, Warehouse management, Discrete & Process manufacturing with in-line Barcode interface to track components and finished goods, Costing, Financial Accounting and Business Analytics. The solutions are enabled across a range of devices including desktops/laptops, tablets, handheld devices and mobiles.
