Notes to Editors
Other updates on how ofi is making its brand proposition real for customers include:
- Expanding innovation and manufacturing capabilities: from 14 innovation centers today, ofi is opening a Chicago customer solutions center before the end of the year, and a new European center in 2022. These are supported by a new soluble coffee processing facility in Brazil to serve the expanding demand for coffee and a state-of-the-art dairy ingredients facility in New Zealand.
- Giving customers and partners more insight into supply chain challenges and setting specific targets to address them: Following on from the launch of the Cashew Trail sustainability strategy in June, ofi’s first formal goals and targets for hazelnuts will launch in early November, closely followed by almonds, and spices in 2022. In September, ofi’s Russian dairy business published its goals including a carbon reduction target of 50% per litre of milk by 2030 and carbon net zero dairy by 2050. The first impact report for Cocoa Compass was published in April, with its 2020 milestones achieved and progress shared for 2024 and 2030 goals. A first impact update for the Coffee LENS sustainability strategy will be published before December. Program data, footprinting and insights are also provided by sustainability platform AtSource.
