About / Olam Indonesia

Olam Indonesia

Since 1996, when we started trading cocoa out of a small warehouse in Sulawesi, Indonesia has been Olam’s home. Nearly 25 years later, we buy cocoa, coffee, nutmeg, and black and white pepper from more than 400,000 farmers, collectors, and suppliers throughout the archipelago. Our wet and dry coffee processing mills, local cocoa processing operation BT Cocoa and sugar refining operation PT DUS provide us with strong product transformation capability. From field to factory gate, Olam supports farmers and communities through responsible sourcing and community development. And we aggregate products from around the archipelago to provide your food business a complete ingredient product portfolio.

Olam Markets promises:

Competitive prices: through our extensive global and domestic footprint we bring you the best products from around the world at the lowest prices

Smart, reliable service: with over 1,000 employees, dozens of warehouses, and several processing plants throughout the country, we make it easy for you to order and receive the best products when you need them

Responsible sourcing: we work with farmers to improve crop quality and to certify their sustainable products, generating more income for them and a healthier environment for all of us

Re-imagining Global Agriculture and Food Systems
Each nut brings its own procurement challenges, from origin limitations to poor traceability. That’s why our model is based on breadth of supply, building relationships and improving efficiency for our customers. Our portfolio includes almonds, cashew, chia, hazelnuts, peanuts, pistachios, sesame and walnuts.
Our spices are sourced and managed by teams on the ground around the world. These include ginger, nutmeg, cinnamon, turmeric, cumin, garlic and onion. Our sourcing network supports our world-class processing facilities, which offer the highest finished product quality, safety and security.
From butter and cheese to milk powder, our dairy products and ingredients are consumed around the world. Thanks to our global team of farmers, processors, traders, and dairy cows, our business produces quality, safe, nutritious dairy ingredients.
As one of the leading green coffee origin exporters in the world, and one of the leading buyers of Arabica coffee in Indonesia, we are in a good position to work with farmers to improve yields, quality, incomes and overall resilience in an increasingly unpredictable world.
Our cocoa inspires the creation of products that delight the senses with flavour, texture, and colour. Our local cocoa processing operation, BT Cocoa Indonesia, supported by research and development expertise from around the world helps us supply the best cocoa ingredients to leading chocolate and confectionery manufacturers in the region
Farmer Insights
Mr. Aca
Farmer, Indonesia
I had never seen these animals before, but now I know and if they come to my farm, I just let them be. Olam taught me that they live just beside the mountain, near my farm, and sometimes we even hear them!”, said Mr. Aca, a Coffee farmer living near the habitats of Java hawk and Java gibbons.
