Olam’s operations in Ecuador started in April 2010 with the establishment of an office in Guayaquil to develop cocoa and teak sourcing and export businesses.
The cocoa operations are in line with the Olam strategy of being present in all the major producing countries, buying directly from small intermediaries and farmers, which not only enables us to participate in the lower-end of the supply chain but also gives us first-hand information on the local market. This is Olam’s first direct presence for cocoa in the region, and with the rising crops in South America, we expect this operation to further strengthen Olam’s position as the largest cocoa beans trading company in the world.
We are also participating in Ecuador’s Teak industry to complement our operations in Central America and offer our customers a broad portfolio of products and qualities.
