About Us

Myanmar Zarla Distribution has started operations since November, 2005 as Mercury Distribution Co., Ltd basing in humble roots with just three trucks that were limited to serving only in Yangon. We have rebranded as Myanmar Zarla Distribution in March, 2016 expanding with larger scaled operations. In the beginning of operations, belief in the concept and power of retail distribution was still in its infancy and other channels of distribution were preferred. However, the overriding desire to fulfill our VISION acted as our guiding star and the company slowly but surely carved out a market for itself in the Yangon market space.

After a few years of operations, it was decided that to be true to our VISION, we needed to expand our distribu- tion footprint to other cities and regions in the country. This led to the opening of Mandalay Branch, which would become the first of many other branch offices in the future. It was also decided that an expansion in not only the location but the channels of distribution itself was needed to ensure that we provided the best service to our customers. Due to this, the company diversified its distribution channels to include wholesale, retail, modern trade and any other significant market segments in order to capitalize on our demand network.

After many years of building our capacity and infrastructure to include both hard and soft competencies, Myanmar Zarla Distribution is fast becoming one of the Premier Distributors in the country who can truly claim nationwide reach. It is our sincere intention to provide our customers with leading multi-channel net- works, geographic diversity, effective sales-force and scale of operations so that they may enjoy leadership roles in the Myanmar market.

Our Distribution Channels

Traditional Trade

Traditional trade forms the backbone of the Myanmar consumer market. This sector comprises more than 80% of demand for FMCG products. Aggressive expansion in the retail sector has resulted in a nationwide footprint of 15 branch offices and over 20,000 direct distributing outlets and we are adding to this number everyday.

Modern Trade

Modern trade is one of the fastest growing market segments in the country and will be an essential channel for the future. It is the policy of the company to cover every modern trade center in its portfolio to ensure the presence of its brands in this crucial market sector.
