From “farm to fork” refers to the journey agricultural goods and industrial materials embark on, from their place of origination to the end consumer. The journey sounds simple, but in reality, the supply chain is complex and needs to be managed with precision and care to secure delivery.
Increasing our control over the journey from farm to fork is the way we protect supply. The greater the control we have, the greater the security and value we are able to provide to our customers.
In Asia, we invest in origination, processing and logistic assets at strategic locations for each commodity. Specifically, our business focuses on:
While managing our business activities, we are also continuously managing business risks. This includes anticipating and responding to any circumstances that may arise or potentially impact supply.
Maintaining an active presence across the supply chain.
We originate and transport about 80 million tons of commodities every year.
Louis Dreyfus Company Asia operates 12 different business lines. These business lines are also known as Platforms. We have a dynamic operation in Asia, as it is a strategic origination point and key destination market for our Group’s major commodity flows. In Singapore, we strive to offer a comprehensive suite of services in helping us meet the specialized and regional needs of our customers.
Louis Dreyfus Company has become a leader in global trade with Asia. Our regional head office opened in Singapore in 1993 and now oversees 17 offices and over 30 assets with more than 2 300 employees. The region represents a large portion of Louis Dreyfus Company’ global trade flow. With access to all 12 platforms, our industrial footprint continues to grow as we seek to invest in assets that deliver products to meet the growing needs of our customers.
Business activities that extend into more than 10 major trade flows.
The IMF has projected that Asia will remain the global growth leader.
