“Traceability to origin is a prerequisite to building more sustainable supply chains. This is in line with COFCO International’s ambition to meet the world’s increasing demand for food in a responsible way. If the company meets the agreed targets, the related margin savings will be invested to further improve performance across sustainable supply, health and safety, environment, communities and upholding standards,” the company says in a stament.
Jing Wu, CFO at COFCO International, stresses that the company is proud to have built this sustainable financing partnership with many of the largest international and Chinese banks and will further leverage these relationships and together develop new innovative financing to incentivise sustainable agriculture.
