Oilseeds overview

Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) has developed a deep understanding of regional consumer needs and achieved strong penetration in all key destination markets throughout its history of more than 160 years. 

As a top three supplier of soybeans and canola oils to the Mexican market, we have developed a strong reputation within the market as a preferred supplier.

LDC originates in all major grain producing regions of the world – US, South America, Australia and countries of the Black Sea – and manages a large import and distribution network in key consumption regions such as North, Central and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. This enables us to maintain a global network of origination, shipping and distribution in key growing regions.

Our oilseeds business is closely integrated with complementary logistics, crop inputs and processing businesses. The products we import are either used in the oilseed industry, or are transformed into meals and oils for local market distribution.

LDC’s Oilseeds platform supplies the domestic market with almost 1 million metric tons of soybeans annually, mainly sourced from the United States and South America. This represents more than 26% of Mexico’s total demand. We are also a leading supplier of different vegetable oils to Mexico, which we source from a diverse asset base.
