THE HISTORY OF MERSALG

Mersalg was founded in 1994 and has since then provided sales and sales promotion services to a number of companies within the grocery trade, specialist shops and service station sectors.

We are an independent sales organisation and a neutral  partner without our own products. We work with a number of heavy-weight brands, but also small suppliers with significant growth potential.
