Cofco Agri engages in agricultural trading and processing businesses, which it originates from surplus producing regions such as South America, South Africa, East Europe, North America and Australia, to supply regions with high demand such as China, Asia and the Middle East. We own and operate logistics and processing assets in strategic locations within key global trade flows. Cofco Agri had sales of $16.9 billion last year, and delivered 47 million tones of products globally, with 45 asset locations and 9,500 employees in 29 countries.
Cofco Agri’s continued growth is enhanced by the fact that it is the principal international origination platform for COFCO International, with its upstream origination and trading operations linked to the downstream processing and distribution capabilities of COFCO and its affiliates in China to create a fully integrated value chain, consistent with COFCO’s strategy
The Grains & Oilseeds operation of COFCO Agri Australia markets Australian grains through COFCO Agri’s global network. We also work with local businesses to provide rural representation to Australian growers and as a major shareholder in Quattro Ports have developed the latest export terminal in Australia at Port Kembla. This significant investment in Port Kembla demonstrates COFCO Agri’s commitment to building infrastructure to provide an efficient pathway for Australian grain to the world.
