Food Ingredients Europe 2023

 

FIE 2023 took place in Frankfurt, where our Cocoa and global Nuts and Ingredients teams were on-site. 

 

With over 100 years of experience, our cocoa products are sought-after by some of the world’s largest food companies, as well as by hundreds of small- medium-sized food businesses. Our products are well-suited for applications within bakery, fillings, dairy, drinks and many more.

 

 

 

ACOM's Farmfit Fund with IDH

 

Last year, IDH Farmfit Fund provided a USD 1M loan to finance inputs and fertilisers to smallholder coffee farmers in ACOM’s supply chain. This summer IDH had the pleasure of visiting the program.

 

We are extremely proud to partner with IDH in the framework of a sustainable coffee supply chain project in Vietnam with the support of our SMS team. The project is leveraging both organizations' strengths for the benefit of small-scale coffee farmers and the environment.
