Today, we are the largest multi-national processor and exporter of Peruvian green coffee supplying roaster customers around the world.
Our business model relies on our direct relationships so we partner with more than 3,500 farmers, cooperatives, collecting their crop as close as possible to the farm gate, and managing the entire supply chain from origination to processing, sales and delivery. We have also invested in two modern coffee processing mills with the most advanced technologies to maintain and preserve the quality produced by the farmers.
Our sustainability programmes currently reach more than 1,500 farmers under the Olam Livelihood Charter, making significant positive impact to their livelihoods. The programmes are focused on optimising farm economics and creating a positive environmental and social impact in the communities and landscapes in some of the least developed areas of the country. We strive to develop customised solutions to improve yields, quality, and market access, and provide training on forest preservation and reforestation and climate smart agri-practices.
Peru was Olam’s first operation in the Central America & Andean Region, today our business in Peru employs 105 people and 49 seasonal workers in 6 locations.
"We owe our success in Peru to strong partnerships with the farming community and a passionate and ambitious team, who are focused on continued growth and excellence."
