Time to transform agricultural supply chains

Agriculture faces some of the world’s biggest developmental, economic, and environmental challenges, which need to be resolved in the next decade to keep feeding the world’s growing population responsibly.

Throughout its 30+ year history, Olam has learned from and worked with local farmers across six continents to truly understand integrated agricultural supply chains and the challenges that come with producing agricultural products.

To accelerate the drive for positive sustainability action in agricultural supply chains and create value for our customers, Olam developed AtSource. A revolutionary sustainability insights platform for agricultural supply chains, purposefully created to demonstrate social and environmental impact and drive change for farmers, communities and ecosystems.

TEN core goals in three main areas

Building on Olam’s sustainability framework, AtSource’s structure is linked to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and the Principles of the UN Global Compact and actively monitors ten core sustainability topics in three main areas.

When an Olam product comes from an AtSource supply chain, environmental and social data is collected on fields, farms, and at every stage of in the product’s journey. The insights from the AtSource dashboard – and the resulting action plans carried out by Olam in partnership with farmers, customers, NGOs and international development agencies – play a pivotal role in improving the livelihoods and wellbeing of farmers, their communities and the environment. Using these insights Olam customers are able to:

Build trust though traceability & data-based transparency in their supply chains

Report on sustainability initiatives & performance of their products & ingredients

Meet their sustainability targets & commitments

Generate insights that will inspire action and positive change in their supply chains
