Kickstart Food” program - Growing a better world together
There are three areas within the “Kickstart Food” program that Asia has been focusing on for some time – trade, productivity and waste. To resolve the structural imbalances in Asia’s natural resources, Rabobank Asia has been actively facilitating trade in and out of Asia, providing its Asian clients with access to world markets; Additionally, Rabobank is actively partnering with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and a broad consortium of stakeholders in the food industry to improve productivity with lower environmental impact on Asia’s rice farmers; Lastly, the bank is also organizing and facilitating various innovation platforms and venture capital funds that focus on food and agricultural innovation which helps substantially reduce waste. In short, Rabobank Asia works to optimize Asia's imbalanced natural resources and to connect Asian farmers to global markets, to increase agricultural productivity in a sustainable manner, and to reduce food waste in all agricultural supply chains across Asia to ultimately help Asian farmers make a living.
