Founded in 1851, Louis Dreyfus Company is a leading merchant and processor of agricultural goods.
Our activities across a diversified range of business lines span the entire value chain, from origination to distribution, helping to feed and clothe up to 500 million people every year.

We are LDC.
A Strong Identity
We are a company with high ethical standards and a strong identity, and we aim to make a real difference to the world through our shared purpose, vision, mission and values.
For more than 170 years, we have sourced agricultural products where they are grown, 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.
Our Value Chain
We are evolving from our traditional role as an agricultural commodities merchant to master more of the food, feed, fiber and ingredients value chain. Through greater vertical integration within our business lines, we aim to secure a seamless, traceable and responsible supply chain from farmers to end-consumers.
Committed to Sustainable Growth
Our people, our partners, the communities we touch and the environment around us are essential to our success and future. We work collaboratively with a wide range of stakeholders toward the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals – 17 ambitious targets for a better world.
