Established in 1813 as a grain trading firm based in what is now known as Arlon, Belgium, Continental Grain Company grew to become one of the largest privately held companies in the world.Through its diversified operations and investment activities, Continental Grain builds long term value in partnership with exceptional management teams.Continental Grain has come a long way in 200 plus years – from a small European grain trading business to a global agribusiness and commodities investment company.The company has achieved a unique balance between long term family ownership and professional management – giving capable people the chance to build unique businesses – and a governance structure of committed people who care deeply about the company and its future.

ContiLatin is Continental Grain's Latin American division, which has been an operating unit of the parent company for over forty years.Today ContiLatin is composed of basic agriculture businesses in five countries – Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru and Venezuela in South America and Haiti in the Caribbean.These businesses include flour milling (Ecuador and Haiti), commercial bread baking and pasta production (Ecuador), integrated poultry operations (Peru and Venezuela), oilseed crushing and consumer products (Paraguay), animal feed production (Ecuador and Peru), hog production (Ecuador) and commodity trading and grain handling (Peru).New countries targeted for near term expansion include Colombia and the Dominican Republic.ContiLatin's operations in most of these countries are partnership-based, with either local family owners or with a longtime US partner, the Seaboard Corporation.

Given the private nature of Continental Grain, ContiLatin is able to take advantage of a long term view when it comes to strategy and investment.The other significant advantage is an organization which has historically pushed capable managers to move up in the organization quickly and take on increasingly important management and p&l roles.Continental Grain has always been known for its aggressiveness in building out its businesses and the nimbleness within its organization.
