Trading Platforms

Trading Platforms

Every day, our traders source, process and merchandize a wide range of commodities, products and services. They are at the center of the global food value chain – and at the heart of our business.

About Trading

Our traders have a wealth of expertise in our main markets – Oilseeds, Grains, Cotton, Rice, Coffee, Sugar, and Juice. Together with our commercial teams they provide multiple services, connecting producers and customers and ensuring safe transportation through efficient and expert Freight services.

The Global Markets platform also uses an array of financial instruments to hedge LDC’s currency risks and to mitigate risks.

All our trading platforms provide a dynamic, stimulating environment at the epicenter of geopolitical, regulatory and sustainability trends. Traders constantly research and navigate the global macroeconomic climate as well as the local dynamics in their region to balance the risks that may impact the quality of a product or its delivery to their customers.

Our business relies on close collaboration between traders, marketers, researchers, originators and business development experts. Our traders possess a range of skills that keeps evolving as we further the digitalization of our business process and invest in innovative products.
