Grains highlights

Grains are Louis Dreyfus Company’s oldest business.

We originate wheat and corn from Uruguay and merchandize it to consumers in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia.

We maintain a global network of origination, shipping and distribution in key growing and consumption regions.

Our Grains business is closely integrated with complementary crop inputs.

Six commercial offices nationwide.

Presence in the country’s main ports facilitating rapid distribution of product.

Global reach

Grains are our Group’s oldest business, and for more than a century we have participated in most phases of the value chain. We therefore have significant experience and understanding of the complexities and risks associated with moving the country’s vast crop production from the field to the consumer.

Operations worldwide

We operate in all grain-producing regions – the Americas, Europe, Black Sea, India, Australia, South Africa and China. In the Grains business, we specialize in selling exportable surpluses of wheat and corn to the world through our extensive international network of offices, distribution centres, transport and storage facilities. Our origination is closely integrated with other agricultural inputs such as seeds, fertilizers and crop protection products.

Logistics solutions

We are able to offer logistics solutions to our domestic agricultural producers and to bring efficiency throughout the whole production process. We do this through key Uruguayan ports and via our network of storage warehouses and sales offices in more than 10 locations throughout the country.

Fertilizers and Inputs

Louis Dreyfus Company (LDC) started the fertilizers and inputs business in the Region 2007. Present in Argentina, Bolivia, Paraguay and Uruguay, we focus on strengthening our position in the region, trusting in the solidity that the broad knowledge our Group has on the market, in order to offer the best inputs to local producers.
