A vertically integrated model

With trading roots dating back to 1783, ED&F Man has a stronger presence in our chosen commodities than most merchants.  Our role is to bridge the gap from farm to fork and add value at every link in the chain – we achieve this through a blend of expertise, dependable service and financial strength.  


Also key to our integrated position in the supply chain is the strategic placement of fixed assets, such as milling, refining and processing operations, warehouses and storage facilities, and inland and port terminals. This physical infrastructure enables us to serve our markets better, securing trade flows, preserving quality and ensuring timely delivery of commodities to match our customers’ needs.
