Each customer depends on us to provide goods and services that are safe, on-time and in line with required specification. They also rely on us to help them create new opportunities.
Established in 1989, we are listed on the Singapore Exchange. Our team of more than 81,000 employees have built leadership positions in many of our businesses such as Cocoa, Coffee, Cotton, Nuts and Spices. Our 6 values shape our actions towards our work, our customers, our suppliers, each other and our culture.
As well as growing crops in our own orchards and estates, and sourcing from over 5 million farmers globally, we operate 75 large processing and manufacturing facilities, and through our 14 innovation centres, we develop ingredients and find solutions for our customers. We also provide support services including risk management solutions and logistics and infrastructure. Through our Packaged Foods Business, we market our own brands directly to consumers in Africa.
Through research and development, we create better quality, great tasting and more reliable products which meets our customer needs and improve the livelihoods of our farmers.
Our scale and insight means we share learnings from one crop to another.
Coupled with investments in processing, we have clear line of sight across these supply chains. We are also firm believers in the ability of large-scale and small-scale farmers to work hand-in-hand, increasing volumes and stimulating opportunity around our operations through smallholder ‘outgrower’ programmes.
We connect customers to farmers.
Our sourcing and buying network extend to over 5 million farmers, either directly or through intermediaries. While we source from over 10,600 large-scale farmers, the vast majority are smallholders in emerging markets so our teams are based on the ground, all year round, so we can help to improve yields, quality and environmental practices. Our digital team is also helping us to reach famers directly with advice and payments, even in the remotest of regions with limited infrastructure.
With over 75 large processing and manufacturing facilities globally, we transform raw materials into bespoke ingredients, fibre and manufacturing blocks.
Safety, quality, efficiency and the environment are cornerstones of our processes. We have facilities close to production and customer markets, facilitating trading, creating employment and reducing our carbon footprint.
Our teams are varied, with everyone adding a different value.
We employ agronomists, analysts, coffee cuppers, ginners, quality assurers, traders and many more besides. We pride ourselves on finding solutions that work for all, but there’s always room for improvement and innovation throughout the supply chain.
It is an honour to be recognised by others. In recent years, we have been proud to receive awards for excellence in sustainability, leadership, management, corporate responsibility, investor relations, corporate governance, transparency and the way we manage our workforce.
