Our story

Garrets International was founded in 1991 to facilitate full co-operation between ship owners and managers, crew and suppliers by providing a complete provision management service. By 2015 Garrets was recognised as a world-leading maritime provision management company with a fleet of over 1,000 ships of all types and sizes supplying them in ports around the world. Garrets became part of the Wrist Group as of 28 January 2016.

Our thinking

To us, a better life at sea starts with availability and accountability. That’s why we’re present in every port with full access to fresh goods and high-quality items – and it’s why our customers can always trust us to deliver on time and on budget — no matter where and when. 
Our ambition is the success of our customers. That requires us to truly partner up and guide our customers — not only on provisions and optimizing supply patterns, but also on nutrition, menu planning, personal development and much more. It also requires us to keep exploring new ways and seek out new technologies — on their behalf. We innovate and turn new ideas into action. In our minds, today doesn’t have to define tomorrow.  
We take pride in providing expert care for all seafarers across the globe. 

We partner closely with all our customers on budget management, nutrition guidance, and more.
