Agri Science & Technology

Plant science is fundamental to improving farming productivity, resilience of our supply and the quality and functionality of our products and ingredients.

Global crop production faces many challenges, including fragile supply chains, characterized by inefficient farming, vulnerability to disease and climate change, high environmental impact and connected social issues. Working together with farmers in the field – to improve productivity and resilience – will lead to better income for farmers, more efficient food crops and reduced impact on the environment. While our sustainability agronomists are key in spearheading our on-the-ground collaborative effort, we also work with institutes and industry partners, through governmental initiatives and with universities to enhance our collective knowledge and to increase positive impact in agricultural supply chains.

Through our understanding and ability to identify the biological factors that impact raw material value and yields – in collaboration with our farmers – we have developed sustainable solutions to improve functionality, quality and farm productivity throughout our global operations, from cocoa to spices and from coffee to nuts.


We strive to help farmers understand crop quality attributes to create improved consumer products and gain a higher price, and giving customers increased consistency. Taking this one step further, through plant science, we can also adapt raw material parameters to improve and differentiate flavoring and coloring properties or improve fat content.


Our customers – well-known brands from around the world – can rely on the quality of our different ingredients to create their signature products.
