About us

Our Story

Welcome to SOKO distributors. SOKO is a Swahili word that means market place. Our passion of creating an inclusive village where all makers are welcome has culminated in SOKO. The market place showcases makers that are BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People Of Color), women, and locals. As a CA distributor, importer, and exporter of wine, beer and liquor, SOKO offers premium and unique products.

SOKO wholesale sells directly to distributors, restaurants, retailers, chains, clubs and grocery stores. With a commitment to diversity, SOKO promises to elevate any alcohol program and your customers’ experience.

CEO, Dr. Chris Wachira and COO, Chadwick Spell have over 15 years of distribution experience between them. They share a vision of building community and inspiring an appreciation for underrepresented brands.
