About Us

    We’re a leading food and agri-business, supplying food ingredients, feed and fibre to thousands of customers worldwide, from world famous brands to small family run businesses.

    Established in 1989, we’re listed on the Singapore Exchange. Our global team of over 81,000 employees have built leadership positions in many of our businesses such as cocoa, coffee, cotton, nuts and spices. Our six values shape our actions towards our work, our customers, our suppliers, our culture and each other.

    A Taste of What We Do

    As well as growing crops in our own orchards and estates, we source from over five million farmers and operate 75 large processing and manufacturing facilities. We develop ingredients and packaging solutions, and deliver risk management, logistics and infrastructure to support our customers’ needs. Through our Packaged Foods Business, we market our own brands directly to consumers in Africa. Here’s a flavour of what that looks like.

    Purpose & Vision

    We aim to address the challenges involved in meeting the needs of a growing population, while achieving positive impact for farming communities, our planet and our stakeholders.

    Our Strategy

    In January 2019, we launched a revised strategy to enhance our leadership position and capture value from key emerging consumer trends.
