ofi, a leading supplier of naturally good food and beverage ingredients, today unveiled a new sustainability strategy – ‘Choices for Change’ and ambitious 2030 targets.

 

Global food brands and retailers are facing growing consumer demand for sustainable products, with increasing weather related and other challenges in the food supply chain and significant new sustainability linked legislation coming up. With ‘Choices for Change’, ofi will provide these companies and their consumers with specific choices to deliver long-term impact across four critical pillars: Prosperous Farmers, Thriving Communities, Climate Action, and Regenerating the Living World.

 

Every 2030 target in the Choices for Change strategy delivers on key customer needs, including:

ofi achieves industry first with Rainforest Alliance certification for almonds in US
  • Landmark achievement gives food brands and consumers additional assurances in the responsible sourcing of ofi’s California almonds.

 

ofi (olam food ingredients), a global leader in naturally good food and beverage ingredients, has earned America’s first Rainforest Alliance certification for its California orchards, underscoring the company’s extensive sourcing and sustainability capabilities.

 

As one of the world’s largest almond growers with orchards in California and Australia, ofi’s certification is good news for makers and consumers of almond-based food and drink products, from cereal bars and trail mixes to milk alternatives and flours. It not only demonstrates responsible almond sourcing practices to customers but also highlights ofi's dedication to its ambitious ‘Almond Trail' sustainability product strategy.

 

ofi’s approach to producing high-quality, flavorful almonds with a lower carbon footprint is driven by its pioneering partnerships with the Almond Board of California and the California Water Action Collaborative, as well as universities and labs. The collaboration focuses on incorporating high levels of mechanization and the latest agronomy practices to improve water-use efficiency, ensure best-practice pollinator management techniques, and increase orchard carbon capture activities.

 

“We're happy that ofi joined hands with us to certify their almond ranches in California. It's great to see their commitment to improving practices within the almond industry, from managing pests and chemicals responsibly to enhancing soil and supporting biodiversity. This move broadens the choices for sustainability-conscious consumers, who can now enjoy Rainforest Alliance certified almonds, hazelnuts, and cashews.” - Michelle Deugd, Director Forest and Agriculture, Rainforest Alliance

 

Damien Houlahan, Head of Almonds at ofi: “Our approach to responsible almond farming and supply chain transparency is ambitious, but it goes hand in hand with delivering high-quality products to our customers - and their consumers. This certification reflects our relentless pursuit of making every almond count toward a more sustainable and equitable future. It’s a testament to the hard work and dedication of everyone involved with ofi, from our orchard teams to our operations teams, who have committed to upholding the rigorous standards set by the Rainforest Alliance.”

 

As ofi continues its sustainability efforts under its 'Almond Trail' strategy, customers and partners can look forward to the first impact report detailing its 2023 progress, set to be published later this year.

Fighting malaria in Nigeria

Malaria is sadly a daily risk for cocoa-growing communities in Nigeria with the country contributing to 27% of malaria deaths globally[1].   Without treatment, the disease can be fatal with symptoms ranging from fever, muscular pains, vomiting and diarrhoea, anaemia, convulsions and coma. Cocoa farmers in Nigeria find themselves more susceptible to malaria due to its high prevalence in rural and agricultural areas.

 

This challenging picture in Nigeria is set against a yet more complex situation globally due to the enduring impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, which posed a disruption to the provision of malaria prevention, diagnosis, and treatment, driving increased cases. In 2022, malaria cases globally reached 249 million, far above the number of cases the World Health Organisation estimated for the year, before the COVID-19 pandemic, and representing a five million increase on 2021 cases[2].

 

The U.S. President’s Malaria Initiative is the U.S. government’s largest program in the fight against malaria and has been actively working across the African continent since 2006. Led by the United States Agency for International Development and co-implemented with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, PMI works with government, private sector, multilateral, and civil society partners to save millions of lives from the infectious disease. 

 

PMI partnered with ofi for the first time in 2023, along with the Cross River State Government, to widen the distribution of insecticide-treated nets (ITNs).
