INFORMATION & IDEAS
Around the globe, DuPont scientists work in concert with farmers, local businesses, governments, NGOs and others who know the “facts on the ground” in order to find the answers that will increase food protection and production.
Although science provides answers that can be applied universally, DuPont experience shows that solutions for local food systems must be developed at a community level.
DuPont is committed to working side-by-side with local populations to ensure that science is applied to local agriculture and food production for a more secure future for all.
