How are we re-imagining?

To re-imagine global agriculture we need to harness technology, the vast experience of colleagues and the expertise of those outside our organisation.

We need to understand the true sustainability impact of agricultural products. This is increasingly critical for Olam and its customers. The earth’s capacity to continue to provide water, nutrients and a stable climate is at a tipping point. Millions of farmers are also in need of a future that is economically and socially sustainable, one in which future generations will invest and grow.

However, reliable and consistent data is difficult to obtain because of the fragmentation in global agricultural supply chains, particularly in emerging markets. Crops often make their way from farmers in rural villages, change hands through many intermediaries, and are combined with other volumes before reaching a manufacturer such as a food company, making traceability difficult. Olam and its customers need a new set of tools to inform and plan social and environmental initiatives at the scale and urgency required to benefit farmers, rural communities and planet. 

In 2014 we launched the Olam Farmer Information System (OFIS) – using GPS and detailed surveys, OFIS provides smallholder farmers with far greater data and information on their farms than ever before to help increase yields and quality.

In 2018 we launched AtSource – one of the most comprehensive sustainability packages in the marketplace for B2B customers which guarantees traceability and  meets increasing sustainability requirements.
