South America

As one might expect from a part the world famed for its coffee growing, we are one of the largest exporters from Brazil where we have our own plantation, as well as the Andean countries of Peru and Colombia.

We source from multiple farmers across the 3 countries, supporting many with disease control, climate change resilience and good agricultural practices to improve yields, quality and incomes.

Other major farming investments across the continent include our peanuts operations in Argentina, which is an integrated supply chain from farm through to shelling and blanching. We also source and process Alubia beans and have become a top 3 exporter. In Uruguay, we are the largest dairy farmers in the country through subsidiary New Zealand Farming Systems (NZFS).

In Ecuador, we have set up our first regional cocoa operation working directly with farmers. We are also the largest paprika exporter through our spices business from Peru. Other products both imported and exported for our South America operations include cotton, rice, spices, sugar, plantation teak and wheat.
