Future-proof living, housing and business, with enough nutritious food for everyone: that is what we want to help facilitate. As a cooperative bank, we have integrated sustainability into our business operations. Through our inclusive approach, we aim to help clients and stakeholders gradually become more sustainable. To enable this, we use our financial solutions, knowledge and access to networks.


As a cooperative bank founded by farmers, Rabobank is rooted in society. We want to make a substantial contribution to solving the global food challenge: feeding a growing population long into the future. We also work to foster well-being and prosperity in the Netherlands. In order to achieve these goals, we focus on supporting our clients, their communities and the world around them. We do this using our knowledge, networks and financial solutions.


Banking for Food

Rabobank began as a movement of cooperative banks founded by Dutch farmers. More than a century later, food and agriculture (F&A) remains our core international business. We envision a food system that meets rising demand for affordable, nutritious food. One that respects producer livelihoods and the planet. We call it the Banking for Food Strategy.
