Olam first initiated operations in the United Kingdom in London in 1992. In 2003 the business was ignited with the establishment of Olam Europe Limited for Olam’s cocoa products trading. The London office also serves as the headquarters of Olam cocoa business worldwide, the central hub for Olam’s Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability team and our Manufacturing and Technical Services team function.
In 2011 we acquired Britannia Food Ingredients, one of the leading independent specialty fats suppliers to the UK confectionery and snack food industries. We also recently established a sugar trading and research hub to complement our activities. Today we employ close to 80 people in our wide ranging businesses and functions.
