Since our establishment in 1989, we have remained focused in a single commodity asset class – the agricultural complex. We have grown by taking advantage of adjacent opportunities in the agricultural complex and have evolved from a single-product, single-country company in 1989, to a multi-product, multi-national, integrated supply chain manager today. We have consistently exceeded the expectations of all our stakeholders by leveraging our resources, including people, knowledge, capabilities, skill sets, systems and physical assets, to create a competitive advantage which has helped us to grow profitably and to build leadership positions.
Olam today is a global leader in the supply chain management of agricultural products and food ingredients. With operations across more than 60 countries, we source 20 products from over 45 origin countries and market them to over 10,000 customers with a global employee strength of more than 13,000 employees. Olam’s growth strategy in the first 20 years was driven by a clear focus on our core business and a systematic and repeatable formula for adjacency expansion based on that core. In addition to organic growth, we have also grown through carefully selected acquisitions since 2007.
Over the last 20 years, we have stayed focused on this single agri-commodities asset class and, within that, built a diversified and relatively recession resilient portfolio, largely comprising food raw materials and ingredients. In addition, the nature of our participation in this industry, mainly as a supply chain manager earning a predictable, fee quality income, has helped us develop a business model that performs consistently across both economic and commodity cycles.
Our vision is to be a leading, global, integrated supply chain manager and processor of agri-commodities by serving our strong grower and customer franchise globally; pursuing select scalable and attractive niches in upstream and midstream value-added processing; and capitalising on our emerging market expertise.
