DuPont Investing In Agricultural Research, Partnerships To Help Achieve Global Food Security

The Hill: Global food security index a call to action
Jim Collins, executive vice president with responsibility for the DuPont Agriculture segment: DuPont Pioneer and Crop Protection

“…Pressures on systems that support food security even in the most developed countries are growing. … That’s why DuPont is deeply invested in building resiliency in food systems around the world. Meeting the needs of the growing global population — and the need for tools that can help farmers grow more nutritious food to feed us all — is at the heart of our business. To help achieve this goal, we’ve committed $10 billion to research and development and the introduction of 4,000 new products by the end of 2020. … The pressure of climate change means that we have a small window of opportunity to achieve our food security objectives, but they are achievable if we make the right investments in agricultural research and development now. Working in partnership with governments, non-governmental organizations, and farmers, I’m confident in our ability to do so” (6/13).
