olam food ingredients (“ofi”), a global leader in naturally good food & beverage ingredients, announced today that it has secured a multi-tranche sustainability-linked facility aggregating US$1,975 million (the “Facility”). ofi was created in early 2020 following the announcement of the re-organisation within Olam International Limited (now Olam Group Limited “Olam Group”) to unlock and maximize its long-term value. 

Rishi Kalra, Executive Director and Group CFO of ofi said:

“At ofi, sustainability is at the heart our operations. This Facility is fully aligned with ofi’s growth strategy to deliver sustainable, natural, value-added food and beverage ingredients and solutions through a diverse channel mix, to customers across the globe.”

Proceeds from the Facility will be applied towards refinancing of ofi’s existing loans and for general corporate purposes. The facility comprises a 2 and 3 year Revolving Credit Facility (“RCF”) and a 3-year term loan. The interest margin on the Facility is linked to the achievement of sustainability targets across Environmental, Social and Governance areas and could reduce if those targets are met.
