Rabobank adds girth with stronger food appetite in Asia

It organises itself by sectors to cater to the food patterns in this part of the world.

"Everybody is talking about the glut in the commodities market but the volume demand is still there despite price volatility, driven by real increases in food and energy consumption, greater demand for high-quality foods and increased urbanisation . . . The food companies will continue to make money. We're not negative at all. We're growing." - Marcel van Doremaele, CEO at Rabobank International, Singapore

ONE suspects nothing gets Marcel van Doremaele more excited than a scatterplot of consumption patterns in Asia. The CEO at Rabobank International, Singapore, is fired up by the expected rise in demand in food products as GDP (gross domestic product) in this part of the world rises over time.
