Who we are

Our story

We are building COFCO International to be a leading global agri-business.

In the past five years we have made two significant acquisitions: Noble Agri and Nidera. While some of our peers have been established for centuries, we are creating a leading global player in a fraction of that time. But that doesn’t change our commitment to doing things responsibly, sustainably and by taking a long-term view.
