Green coffee

Sourcing from a large network of farmers across 18 countries in AfricaAsia and Central and South America, the stories behind our coffee are not just about aroma, taste and quality, we make sure they talk about the importance of traceability, profitable farmers and biodiverse eco-systems. With our year-round presence in origin, our buying teams have years of experience in selecting the best coffees, and through our processing infrastructure we can customize all our finished coffees to the quality and consistency requirements of our customers. 

Specialty coffee

It is said that many hands bring coffee from harvest to roaster, and this is true. But we think of the many faces that help us supply roasters with exceptional coffee from over 30 origins because our business is built as much on relationships as it is on the experience we bring to those relationships, experience from every aspect of the coffee industry.

Our coffee footprint: global reach, local depth

We connect roasters to a vast selection of the best green coffees available, from long-established origins like Uganda and Guatemala, to emerging specialty regions like Laos and Mexico. Our presence in 18 producing countries allows us to offer high quality at high volumes, unique micro-lots and everything in between.

How can companies implement effective workforce nutrition programs? 

By Clara Tessler, Nutrition & Health Manager, ofi

 

Malnutrition and poor health around the world continue to negatively impact businesses as result of working days lost to illness and reduced workforce productivity.

 

As well as benefiting employees, investments by companies in health and wellbeing can lead to better employee engagement, reduced absenteeism and higher performance and productivity.

 

We want to create an environment where employees want to come to work every day – it’s in everyone’s best interest.

 

To that end, at ofi we’ve set a goal that by 2030, everyone in our primary workforce will have access to nutrition support. This is the goal we are working towards to ensure the health and wellbeing of all our employees, driven by our purpose to be the change for good food and healthy future.

 

In 2021, with support from the Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN), ofi began the roll-out of the Workforce Nutrition Alliance’s Workforce Nutrition Scorecard to assess our baseline and develop or strengthen workplace nutrition programs that tackle issues related to malnutrition across our worksites globally. This includes initiatives across four pillars: healthy food at work, nutrition education, nutrition-focused and breastfeeding support, and resources for pregnant and breastfeeding mothers.
