Olam Group Limited (“Olam Group”) announced today that its wholly owned subsidiary, olam food ingredients (“ofi”), a global leader in naturally good food and beverage ingredients, has secured a multi-tranche sustainability-linked facility aggregating US$1,750 million (the “Facility”).  


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

“At ofi, sustainability is at the heart of our operations. This Facility complements our strong liquidity position, sustainability efforts and our growth strategy to deliver sustainable, natural, value-added food and beverage ingredients and solutions through a diverse channel mix to customers across the globe.” 

The Facility has Olam Treasury Pte Ltd as a Borrower. The Facility is initially guaranteed by Olam Group Limited which will transfer to ofi Group Limited following the planned IPO and demerger of ofi. Proceeds from the Facility will be applied towards refinancing of ofi’s existing loans and general corporate purposes. The Facility comprises a two-year and three-year Revolving Credit Facility (“RCF”) and a three-year term loan. The interest margin on the Facility is linked to the achievement of certain sustainability targets and could reduce if those targets are met.

A total of 19 banks from Australia, Canada, China, Europe, Japan, Middle East, Singapore and the United States participated in the Facility across four tiers:
