Olam’s sugar business began in 1995 with the import of our first consignment into Nigeria and Ghana, where we already had a widespread procurement network and infrastructure from our agri-product origination operations. Leveraging these capabilities and warehousing, we were able to ensure sugar provision to customers close to the point of sale and consumption.
The knowledge and experience we developed in Ghana and Nigeria were vital in helping us extend our sugar distribution business into other African countries including Uganda. Today, Olam’s reach further extends across Asia, the Middle East and South America with milling operations in India and processing in Indonesia. Combined with our fundamental analysis strengths, Olam is perfectly positioned to service the varied needs of its customers.
