Who We Are
Established in 1783, ED&F Man is an employee-owned agricultural commodities merchant with 7,000 people in 60 countries and annual revenue in excess of $10bn. We trade sugar, coffee, molasses, animal feed, grains and pulses. We help our counterparties manage price risk through hedging and provide access to commodity and capital markets through our brokerage business.
ED&F Man’s pulses business, trading as Maviga, is a leading player in the international origination, processing and trading of dry edible pulses, seeds and other specialty crops. We work closely with farmers at point of production and use manual, mechanical and electronic sorting methods to precision clean and size material before it is packed and shipped to buyers. We put great emphasis on product quality, performance integrity and service commitment.
We own or operate processing facilities in over 35 origins and ship to over 60 destination markets around the world. With a strong presence in the major ‘special crops’ production areas of North America, Europe and Africa, we are able to provide buyers with reliable and timely information, enabling them to make sound purchase decisions.
Here at ED&F Man we are guided by our five company values: Respect, Integrity, Meritocracy, Client Focus and Entrepreneurship.
Our values are underpinned by a set of essential behaviours, which form part of our performance management approach. Delivering on our objectives is very much about ‘what’ we do, but these essential behaviours also provide a guide and measure for ‘how’ we do things.
As part of the annual performance review, all employees are measured either against a set of five Leadership Essentials if you are a people manager or four Performance Essentials if you are an individual contributor.
