Nutrition and Health

Challenge: Improve farmer and employee wellness and longevity.

Poverty, lack of health infrastructure and access to clean water and sanitation contribute to lowered life expectancies in many of the countries upon which we rely for core crops, which also correlates with farm productivity. Those with specific health issues, whether suffering a disease or exposed to episodic risks, such as pregnant women, are particularly vulnerable.

Our Initiatives Include:
  • Ensuring our employees have access to sufficient and safe sources of food, water and sanitation during working hours
  • Running the Olam Healthy Living Campaign to reach communities with campaigns on health and nutrition
  • Promoting crop diversification to farmers to improve food and nutrition security
  • Mobile medical screenings in rural areas
  • Manufacturing and retailing fortified foods for consumers in African markets
  • Supporting manufacturing customers globally to reduce salt, fat and sugar through ingredients solutions
  • Implementing a consumer marketing policy
  • Supporting research through the Olam Prize for Innovation Security
Scaling Impact Through Sector Initiatives Such As:
Partner Initiatives Include:
  • The END Fund – Neglected Tropical Diseases
  • The Power of Nutrition
  • Swiss Tropical Public Health Institute
  • Red Cross Society of Cote d’Ivoire
Improving the Livelihoods and Nutrition of Cashew Farmers and Their Families

A handful of cashews has become a healthy snack on the go. They’re fibre-rich and full of protein and heart-friendly fats.

Why then are the countries where cashews are grown facing high rates of malnutrition, with many farming households unable to eat healthily themselves.

Olam’s cashew team has been working with partners to understand the sources of the issue and to support communities in addressing them.
