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.


Since 1851, like our founder, we have been conscious of filling a great human and economic need, on a mission to bring the right product to the right location, at the right time.

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.
