Our founder Dr. Pedro Longart has vast experience with the import-export business, owning a bricks-and mortar wholesale export-import business in the 1990s. After becoming an academic in the 2000s, he noticed that many of his students had business ideas or had their own businesses. He also found in his network, and during visits to other countries, potential exporters of many countries in the world who wanted to get into foreign markets but lacked the ways of doing it. Then he came with the idea, to leave a day-to-day academic job and pursue his dream of developing a company able to help exporters and at the same time delight customers with products that will add value to their lives (see our values).

The company is named after the Southern Hemisphere. Del Sur means from the South in Spanish. Being a UAE company, with a global perspective, it is our interest to link the north with the south. Therefore, we both import and export products from the northern hemisphere, particularly Europe to and from the Southern hemisphere, starting with the Middle East and South America.
