Food Security Goals

DuPont 2020 Food Security Goals

Food security is at the heart of our priorities. Across the globe, each of our businesses are addressing food security with science-based innovations. We are building collaborations with businesses, non-profit organizations and governments, and working with local farmers and food producers to get more safe, healthy food to the world’s growing population.


Innovate to Feed the World

We committed $10 billion to research and development, and the introduction of 4,000 new products by the end of 2020. The work centers are developing innovations that will produce more food, enhance nutritional value, improve agriculture sustainability, boost food safety, extend food freshness, and reduce waste.

Engage and Educate Our Youth

By the end of 2020, we will facilitate 2 million engagements with young people around the world to transfer the knowledge of sustainable food and agriculture and the impact it will have on a growing population.

Improve Rural Livelihoods

We will work to improve the livelihoods of at least 3 million farmers and their rural communities through targeted collaborations and investments that strengthen agricultural systems and make food more available, nutritious and culturally appropriate. This is in addition to the work we are already doing to enhance the lives of hundreds of millions of farmers through our normal business practices.
