Our values

"Relationships, not transactions."

At Odem we have the ideas and energy to adapt to your needs and exceed your expectations. We combine a modern outlook with the age-old values of integrity, transparency and respect. We also believe in sharing the wealth, so we look for opportunities to provide communities with solutions that can help them create their own brighter future. Our employees are the cornerstone of our business, and our supply chain is the cement that holds it all together. We take special care in selecting our employees and we are equally vigilant in choosing our clients and suppliers, treating each of these relationships as a partnership. We firmly believe that this approach makes our supply chain more efficient and more competitive, and truly contributes to our clients' growth.

Odem goes to great lengths to attract the brightest talent from a variety of spheres and backgrounds. This allows us to diversify our skills and commit to helping these talents grow, all for the benefit of our partners and clients.

Supply chain competitiveness:

Our employees are the cornerstone of our business, and our supply chain is the cement that holds it all together.

We firmly believe that this approach makes our supply chain more efficient and more competitive, and truly contributes to the growth of all partners.

Illegal honey:

In addition to working closely with organizations that combat illegal honey imports and supporting the authorities responsible for quality control, Odem feels it is our duty to lead the charge in resolving this problem, taking active part in associations such as True Source Honey, a key player in the fight against illegal honey. The solution to the problem is through information and education. Odem is playing a leading role in this area.

Odem - an offering unlike any other:

With solid experience under our belts, we are creative, innovative and always ready to offer our clients new, ever-improving ideas. We owe it to ourselves to do things differently from our competitors. Even better, we want to be THE factor for change. Odem will be to the international honey trade what Cirque du Soleil is to the stage.
