Rabobank maintains at the forefront of emerging technologies that will shape the future of our clients’ businesses and our competitive service delivery in the long-term.



Rabobank was founded by farmers who believed that the cooperative concept of working together would be of benefit to all. Food and agriculture is and always will be at the heart of our strategy. We define our contribution to sustainable development as a collective effort to use natural resources as efficiently as possible, reducing our impact on the environment.


Rabobank is committed to the enablement of a food-secure future for our world’s population with respect to improving both availability and access to food, stimulating balanced nutrition, and enhancing stability of food and agriculture supply chains.



FoodBytes! by Rabobank was created with a simple mission in mind – to find the most innovative and ground-breaking concepts in food and agriculture, and pair that creativity with the capital needed to bring it to market.
