    Supply Chain Management

    Strong supply chain management is fundamental to what we do. We have built an unparalleled network of farmers and cooperatives, and our skills in logistics and risk management enable us to secure supplies and deliver them to our customers. Our technologies enhance product traceability and sustainability, offering additional value.

    Trading

    The world of international commodity trading is fast-paced and exciting. Our traders analyse the proprietary information on supply and demand that gives us the edge to make superior trading calls. Our expertise is supported with rigorous research and analysis honed by quantitative tools and techniques to offer unique industry insight.

    Finance

    Our Finance team has an ambitious vision and transformation agenda. Ensuring predictable outcomes and standardised, efficient and scalable processes is of course critical, but the team also plays a vital role working with our business leaders to strategise and maximise value through innovative financing structures and other special projects.

    Consumer Sales and Distribution

    Large-scale food retail is on the rise in parts of Africa and other emerging markets. The race is on to organise the most efficient distribution and win consumers. We are focused on West Africa, delivering packaged foods and beverages like biscuits, candies, noodles, pastes, and dairy drinks to wholesaler and retailers, using smart marketing campaigns and distribution apps.

    Plantations and Farming

    We grow a range of crops, and share learnings from one to another, driving efficiencies for us and our customers. We understand the pressures of farming and work on the ground with small-scale producers to increase volumes. We stimulate opportunity with communities local to our operations through smallholder ‘outgrower’ programmes.

    Manufacturing, Innovation, and Procurement

    Our network of over 200 manufacturing plants spreads across Asia-Pacific, Africa, Europe, Middle East, and the Americas. The team is responsible for health, safety, quality, and food safety, ensuring we comply with all local laws and meet our environmental, social, and ethical standards, as well as identifying efficiencies and opportunities.

    IT and Digital

    We deliver transformation through cutting edge technologies. We develop systems and platforms which improve our business and make us desirable to work with as a customer or partner, and for as ambitious talent. These include drone image analytics, digital procurement, paperless trading, traceability mapping, as well as day-to-day connectivity.
