Our History

Davis and Dann was formed in 1965 with a focus on bringing FMCG to markets across the world. With an initial interest in European markets, our expansion has taken us across the globe. Today we have distribution networks across Europe, Africa, America and Asia. Our success has been rewarded by having twice been awarded The Queens Award for Export.


In order to effectively meet the requirements of our customers, it is vital that our Export Sales Managers retain close alliances with the different market sectors across the globe. Our multi-lingual and extensively travelled staff give us opportunities within many different countries and cultures, sourcing and supplying new and varied goods when necessary as well as quickly identifying ever changing trends in product and market development.


In 1983, Davis and Dann was acquired by the Kanta Enterprises Group, founded and privately run by the Chatwani Brothers. The Kanta Group has business interests across a spectrum of activities including the Fairview Hotels & HealthCare Group.
