This graphic is powered by Trase.Finance visuals and uses Orbitas data. It was developed by Neural Alpha. We examine companies with major operations in Indonesian or Peruvian palm oil, or Colombian cattle/dairy. Some companies operate in these sectors but are registered in third countries – e.g. palm oil (reg. in Singapore). The flows account for total finance for the company, not just operations in the target countries and commodities.
