Who We Are
ECOM ranks among the leading world merchants in coffee, cotton and cocoa. Founded in 1849, we specialize as an “origin-based” agricultural commodity merchant with operations in more than 30 countries around the world and are committed to being a highly respected leader and innovator in the soft commodities industry. We do this by remaining loyal to the traditional values upon which our company was built – integrity, dedication to growth and development of the industries and markets in which we operate, and loyalty to our clients, suppliers and employees alike. Our business model, developed through steady growth over 160 years, is decentralized but with a complete global supply chain view. This enables us to combine a strong global network and internal community with the agility of locally integrated, entrepreneurial businesses – truly the best of both worlds.
With a multi-generational history of innovation driven by the commitment of individuals around the globe, we know a company is only as strong as the people it employs.
