Issue 1/2018: In a sweet spot: Olam’s winning Southeast Asian strategy

September 2018

Asia, Australia and the Middle East have collectively been one of the largest regions responsible for both sourcing and revenue generation in Olam since its expansion into the region in the late 1990s. Today, it accounts for 26% and 37% of the Group’s sourcing volumes and revenues respectively, and continues to be an engine for pursuing profitable growth in prioritised platforms, such as Edible Nuts, Spices & Vegetable Ingredients, Cocoa and Coffee.
