What nature has to offer is our privilege to use, and we believe that we have a responsibility to use it with great respect, in fairness to all and toward a sustainable tomorrow. This has shaped our purpose.
At LDC, we are guided by a shared purpose: to create fair and sustainable value, for the benefit of current and future generations.
Fairness means working hand in hand with all value chain stakeholders – local farmers, suppliers, partners, customers and consumers – to find shared solutions to common challenges, for the benefit of everyone.
And sustainability means running our business responsibly – wherever we are and whatever we do – so that it can exist for the next 170 years.
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.
Since 1851, our mission has been to use our know-how and global reach to bring the right product to the right location, at the right time.
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.
As we adapt to evolving market conditions, emerging consumer trends and a changing environment, we increasingly leverage our network and expertise to process and transform crops – ourselves and with partners – and invest in the future of food, seeking innovative and sustainable solutions to feed a growing population for the long-term.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do, guiding the way we work as a company.
