Louis Dreyfus Commodities delivered an exceptional performance in 2012. Despite highly volatile markets, challenging weather conditions and political turmoil, we completed our best year ever with NIGS (Net Income Group Share) of US$1.1 billion (excluding Biosev’s contribution prior to ring fencing), an impressive 25% higher than in 2011.

From farm to fork

Increasing our control over the journey from farm to fork is the way we aim to protect supply. The greater the control we have the greater the security and value we provide to our customers.

We therefore invest in origination, processing and distribution assets anchored at strategic points for each commodity. Today, we operate more than 200 industrial assets, including logistics, storage, port and feedstock processing facilities around the world.

Our business is involved in the:

  • Origination and production of a vast diversity of raw and agricultural industrial materials

  • Processing and refining of raw, unrefined and packaged products

  • Storage and transportation of the commodities we handle for export or domestic consumption

  • Research and merchandising in all the countries where we operate

  • Customization and distribution to a wide range of customers from large multinationals to local manufacturers


OUR PLATFORMS
