Founded by Farmers, for Farmers

We were founded in 1898 by farmers looking to support each other’s businesses and give rural communities access to fair financing.

Now as the world’s leading food & agribusiness bank, Rabobank invests in a sustainable food future for all, supporting the production of more food, using less of the world’s precious resources.

Our cooperative values mean that we are accountable to only our clients and their communities - not to shareholder demands like many other banks, so we can focus 100% on our mission of helping farmers grow sustainably.

Stronger through involved members

What makes Rabobank as a cooperative different from other banks?

We have members rather than shareholders. Instead of paying dividend, we invest part of our profit back into society. This is called “cooperative dividend” and is used to support local, national and international projects that would not otherwise be possible.

Our members are also more than regular customers. This is because members help discuss and decide the bank’s course and the local projects we support. We share our knowledge and our network with members through a range of events and meetings. This is how we remain committed to each other.
