Our business includes the processing of nuts – primarily cashews and almonds; and spices – including turmeric, chilli, coriander, cumin, black pepper, and ginger. We are also a leader in cotton, coffee, rice, cocoa products, sugar, oil and oil seeds.
Our teams work directly with thousands of farmers across India, including promoting Climate Smart Agriculture (CSA) in sugarcane and Integrated Pest Management (IPM) in chilli, turmeric and cumin. Our coffee has achieved UTZ/Rainforest Alliance (RFA) certification. We aim to be the supplier of choice, from sourcing and processing to logistics and marketing.
We own 2 sugar mills in India – Barwani in Madhya Pradesh and Rajgoli in Maharashtra, crushing in excess of 1 million tonnes of sugarcane from farmers, many of whom are in Olam Sustainability Initiatives. Following investments and introduction of best practices, we are proud to achieve one of the highest sugar recovery rates in India. Our plants have best in class certifications and are suppliers to all the major food and beverage companies. At our Rajgoli plant we generate bio-energy from bagasse (a sugarcane by-product) which we sell to the state grid. The Rajgoli plant is one of the only 2 Bonsucro certified sugar mills in India.
