About COFCO International

Meeting Tomorrow's Demand. 
We believe that agricultural products, which we need to support our daily life, should be available for every person on this planet, now and in the future.

A multi-flag, global agri-business with a six-continent supply chain, COFCO International is positioned for sustainable growth. Our upstream origination and trading operations are linked to the downstream processing and distribution capabilities of COFCO and its affiliates in importing markets, such as China—creating a fully integrated value chain. With logistics and processing assets located at key global trade flows, and more than 13,000 employees in 35 countries, COFCO International delivered more than 100 million tonnes of products globally in 2016 —with revenues in excess of $35 billion.


For COFCO International 'meeting tomorrow’s demand' means using our critical position within international supply chain to do business in a responsible and sustainable way. We are convinced that our success depends on a strong economic, social and environmental performance, with this triple value creation being key to long term profitability. Our sustainability strategy is focused on five strategic objectives:

  1. Safeguarding standards
  2. Taking care of our people
  3. Connecting supply and demand responsibly
  4. Managing our environmental impact
  5. Building strong communities
