Throughout our history, we have always found innovative and creative ways to feed people responsibly, and we’re on a journey to find new ways to do so in the future.
With a population that is estimated to grow by an additional 2 billion in 30 years, the world today is more complex than ever, and we are committed to helping build a food system that supports all people and sustains our planet. The challenge is more than just “doing more of the same”—we must do better in thinking differently about how we solve the most complex problems. Through our Formula, we will bring together a diverse set of expertise and the scalable resources needed to take on the difficult dilemmas facing our world in the 21st century—and beyond.
Today we supply more than protein to feed our growing world. We also help supply solutions to the pressing food problems of tomorrow. In the process, we hope to raise the world’s expectations for how much good food can do.
The Formula to Feed the Future
The Formula to Feed the Future is our framework to help build a food system that supports all people and sustains our planet. There are three primary ambitions:
Empowering People, Customers
Conserving Natural Resources
& Protecting Our Planet
Innovating Smart, Responsible
The Formula requires everyone’s best thinking in order to tackle the complex problems our world faces today. That’s why we’re committed to working with a broad range of stakeholders as we all aim to sustainably feed the world.
