Group Overview

    In January 2020, Olam announced a transformational Re-organisation Plan to split the company into three distinct and coherent operating groups that are Purpose-led and future-ready in order to maximise Olam’s long-term value on a sustained basis.

    We have developed a clear Purpose, compelling vision and a differentiated strategy for each of our three operating groups. Each can capitalise on specific trends that underpin its sectors, pursue its own strategy, take advantage of new market opportunities, attract new talent, optimise resources and invest in requisite assets and capabilities which will deliver profitable growth and build long-term value on a sustained basis.

    Sunny Verghese, Co-Founder and Group CEO

    “Over the past 30+ years, Olam has built a valuable portfolio of businesses that have achieved leadership positions. By simplifying our businesses across 2 distinct and coherent groups, each with a clear vision for profitable growth, it sharpens our focus and provides opportunities to capitalise on key market trends, while continuing to leverage the benefits of the Olam Group.”
