Sunny Verghese, Co-Founder and Group CEO comments: “2018 was another turbulent year for the global economy and the food and agri-industry. Against this backdrop, we continued to focus on ensuring that Olam is future-fit, pioneering a number of major financial, sustainability and digital initiatives to create long-term value for our continuing shareholders and other stakeholders, particularly customers and farmer suppliers.”

Initiatives include:

  • giving customers granular insight into the social and environmental impact of their ingredients and materials, with the launch of AtSource, unique in the B2B marketplace
  • strengthening future supply chain volumes by embracing 445,900 smallholders in sustainability programmes (23% growth from 2017)
  • diversifying funding with Asia’s first sustainability club-linked loan facility of US$500 million
  • developing non-financial reporting methodology to better understand the invisible impacts of our business on the Human, Social and Natural Capitals we depend upon - an approach called the Olam Integrated Impact Statement
  • driving operational excellence across Olam, improving working capital productivity and cost efficiencies.
