Client Council themes

As part of being active participants in the local communities, the Rabobank Client Councils network was formed to listen, learn and adapt our strategies and investments based on our clients feedback. Together with key clients taking an active part, we work on common goals, sharing information, experience and knowledge.

We provide support in the form of manpower, knowledge, networks, facilities and financial services to help achieve this objective. As identified by our clients, our initiatives are centred around the following themes:

Long-term industry capacity

Attracting and retaining new people has always been an ongoing challenge for agriculture. We aim to create better awareness of the various career opportunities and exciting pathways available to the industry.

We also support young farmers with a range of workshops and mentoring initiatives.


Environmental compliance, water availability, land degradation and waste management are all important factors to keeping farms sustainable. Our goal is to identify the main issues and how we can support our clients.

Also as part of the network, we provide a platform for our clients to share best practices.

Rural / Urban divide

There is little knowledge in urban areas about food & fibre production.

We aim to increase awareness of modern farming practices and food production with urban audiences by organising and supporting initiatives that bridge the rural / urban divide.

Rural health

Isolation and difficulty accessing health services are some of the challenges faced by rural / remote communities.

Together with our clients, we aim to increase awareness of the importance of farmers’ well-being.
