Our purpose is to nourish the world in a safe, responsible and sustainable way. Every day, we connect farmers with markets, customers with ingredients, and people and animals with the food they need to thrive. We combine our experience with new technologies and insights to serve as a trusted partner for food, agriculture, financial and industrial customers in more than 125 countries.
We connect farmers with markets.We connect customers with ingredients to make meals people love. And we connect families with daily essentials — from the foods you eat to the floors you walk on.
It’s been over 155 years since growers and sellers started coming together in our first grain warehouse. These days, we connect people around the world. But we keep things local. Only by building trusting relationships with a range of partners can we fulfil our purpose: to nourish the world in a safe, responsible, sustainable way.
Today, the need to make our food system more sustainable and resilient is urgent. From our seat at the center of the agricultural supply chain, we have a unique ability — and responsibility — to help. Now is the moment. And our global team is heeding the call, innovating with purpose to empower our partners and communities.
We’re working with farmers to increase regenerative agriculture and reduce environmental impact. We’re creating everyday earth-friendly items, like feed that reduces methane emissions and waste-based renewable fuels. And we’re harnessing the power of technology, using artificial intelligence to keep animals healthier while making producers more productive.
As we envision the future we can create together, we reflect on the values that have steered us from the start. We put people first. We reach higher. We do the right thing — so our customers can succeed, and our communities thrive. It’s a long-term view that guides us to listen, adapt and remain resilient as the world sprints forward.
It’s also how we’ll meet the changing needs of the people we call neighbors and the planet we call home — today and for generations to come.
