HBI strives to provide the highest level of service and contractual protection to the counterparts.
Our quality system enables our organisation to continuously improve our procedures, accumulating good practices since 1986.

Auctions are a powerful tool when used at the right time. HBI has been holding auctions since 2001.
HBI's position in the market is strong enough that our customers use our prices as an independent benchmark. Our publishing house Oleoline, is an independent and accurate reporter of the oleochemical market and its raw materials.
Founded in 1986, HBI has always evolved at the heart of the oleochemical business. We have through time, work and expertise built a solid network of offices located in key geographies. HBI is now leaded by the second generation of Directors headed by Jonathan Heming as CEO.
