ofi helps prevent disruption for your brand with enhanced transparency of your supply chain from farm to shelf and enables retailers to appeal to eco-conscious consumers, because sustainability is an important component in all we do.
ofi sources directly and indirectly from more than two and half million farms around the world. We support farmers by helping them boost yields and quality, diversifying crops to increase income, providing them sustainability reports, improving health and education, and enhancing their livelihoods. And many of them report back to us, improving traceability and transparency for our customers throughout the supply chain.
A key aspect of ofi supply chain visibility is that we actually own processing plants — more than 100 around the world. This level of supply management is something our private label customers depend on year-round.
Our innovation centers, 14 in all, are sprinkled around the world, each located near major markets. Taste and flavor trend data is shared, allowing cross-pollination of concepts and new ideas for products every day. Our commitment to finding new applications helps our private label customers turn thinking into reality to delight their shoppers.
Consumers want to know where their products come from and how they end up on the shelf. ofi lets our private label customers share that information in ways others do not. The traceability and provenance data ofi shares helps you better communicate to your shoppers your commitment to sustainability and fair trade.
ofi has invested heavily in automation, process improvement and fostering a workforce culture focused on loss elimination. Many of our facilities are HACCP certified, FSMA compliant, GFSI-BRC certified and capable of offering Halal, Kosher, gluten-free, non-GMO, organic, RFA, UTZ, fair trade and 4C certified products.
ofi technology enables distribution that anticipates our private label customers’ needs. Many of our carrier partners are contracted annually for friction-free delivery. Hundreds of thousands of square feet of production and warehouse space near major markets help us stabilize the supply chain. We control key elements of production and distribution to give our customers predictive stability.
