Who we are

who-we-areAn ‘accidental’ success - TFS was established in 2007 to finance a distribution contract of Brazilian wood pulp destined for the Mediterranean. After an initial year of supporting trade in excess of £10 million, TFS pursued a growth strategy as an export financier of both pulp and tissue paper. In addition to these commodities, TFS now supports exporters of vegetable oils, foodstuff, biofuels, chemicals and plastic commodities.
