In India, we’ve used our long-term presence in other agricultural products to set up infrastructure across the country’s major growing regions. This has enabled us to become a major participant in the regional trade flow and have a strong franchise with domestic spinning mills.
Through our subsidiary Queensland Cotton, we’ve built strong relationships with growers in Australia for whom we provide marketing, ginning, classing, warehousing, logistics and seed marketing. We’re recognised as an industry leader, a trusted supplier of premium quality cotton and a preferred partner for many of the major textile mills worldwide.

Through our integrated ginning model in Côte d’Ivoire, Togo and Chad, we work with small farmers for improving crop yields and quality by providing seeds, agri-inputs, training in good agricultural practices and agronomy services. This helps us secure progressively larger quantity of cotton which in turn improves farmer income and livelihoods. We invest in community development and help build social infrastructure in close partnership with development agencies including IDH, USAID and BMF.
Smallholder farmers are the foundation of the global agriculture and food sector. It’s estimated that they produce around 30% of total crop production, making them critical to global food security.
