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.
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.
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 values are at the heart of everything we do, expressing our shared beliefs, behaviors and aspirations as a company
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.
We have been at the forefront of commodity trading in South Africa since 1924, with the establishment of our LDC office in Cape Town.
