Coffee highlights

LDC has been a leading exporter of Colombian coffee, sharing the country’s premium quality product with the world since 2007.

In 2010, we purchased our first asset in Colombia - the San Antonio Milling Plant. Today, the plant is considered a local industry landmark for its productive capacity and facilities.

Consolidating our growth strategy, in 2011 we bought the San Luis Milling Plant, in Ibague-Tolima, enhancing our presence in the country’s most productive coffee region.

In 2013, LDC Colombia broadened its purchasing spectrum and consolidated various buying stations throughout Colombia, facilitating direct access for all suppliers in rural areas.

Over the years, we have developed strong commercial bonds with several supply chain companies in Colombia. This gives us the sourcing and production capabilities needed to deliver to our clients efficiently.

In line with the Group’s policy, we believe sustainability and ethics are crucial to the coffee business, and we work to ensure strict compliance with UTZ, Rain Forest Alliance (RFA), Fair Trade Labeling Organization (FLO), and Starbucks Coffee and Farmer Equity (C.A.F.E.) practices.

Our Colombia operation is solidly founded on three core strategic pillars.

Strong sourcing and production capacity

LDC Colombia relies on a robust and efficient operations network, which includes offices, buying stations, warehouses and processing assets in major coffee growing areas. This structure allows us to access most of the coffee cultivated throughout the country and provides us with ample production capacity to meet our clients’ expectations.

Global exporters

LDC has the capacity and infrastructure to export coffee all over the world, making strategic use of a strong presence in America, Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. Using our excellent freight capabilities, we draw on more than 165 years’ experience to deliver the right product to the right location, at the right time, throughout the world.

Sustainability

We understand that we have a responsibility to ensure a sustainable future for the agricultural industry. To achieve this, we work hard to adapt our operations to sustainable practices of the highest standards.

Currently, we work with several certification organizations including UTZ, RFA, C.A.F.E Practices and FLO, which promote sustainable business practices in the coffee value chain. Additionally, we conduct projects with donors and strategic partners, aimed at improving the quality of life for coffee growing communities in Colombia.
