Rabobank’s mission is making a substantial contribution to welfare and prosperity in the Netherlands and to feeding our world more sustainably. As a consequence of a growing and wealthier global population the demand for food is expected to rise considerably. The food and agri value chains have to produce more with less natural resources. As a leading international food and agri bank Rabobank aims to support and facilitate in meeting this challenge, by providing access to finance, knowledge and networks to clients and their communities.
