Who We Are

About Us

LDC is a global merchant and processor of agricultural goods. Guided by our strong values and building on our rich heritage, we work to realize our vision for a safe and sustainable future, contributing to the global effort to provide sustenance for a growing population.

Our Vision

Driven by our purpose to create fair and sustainable value, we work to realize our vision for a safe and sustainable future, contributing to the global effort to provide sustenance for a growing population.

To do so, we are transforming to embrace more of the agricultural value chain, working with both suppliers and customers to ensure the sustainable and traceable product journey, from farm to fork, that customers, consumers and our planet expect from us.

Sustainability

We recognize that our activities at all stages of the value chain have an impact on the environment, and touch the people who work for us or live near our facilities. LDC takes its responsibility for managing that impact very seriously, and continually seeks to minimize its environmental footprint.

Sustainability is central to our business model, and therefore a daily consideration for our regional and commercial teams, who address sustainability issues in everything we do, and wherever we operate

Our Heritage

Founded in 1851, our company has a rich entrepreneurial heritage that inspires our present work and future plans.

For almost 170 years, we have sourced agricultural products where they are grown, and transported and transformed them for customers and consumers around the world, working with a wide range of trusted partners – from smallholder farmers to global organizations.

In 1942 we established a permanent presence in Brazil with the acquisition of Comércio e Indústrias Brasileiras (Coinbra), trading coffee, citrus products, oilseeds and sugar.
