Food Goals | DuPont Food Security | DuPont ASEAN | Scoop.it
Food security means local solutions to a global challenge. Every part of the world is unique. Our food security solutions should be just as unique.
DuPont ASEAN's insight:

The consequences of hunger and malnutrition are so devastating, so multi-faceted, that no one country, let alone one company, has all the answers. That is why we are committed to working with others – through collaborations with NGOs, governments, academia and others in the industry – and by working locally with farmers from Kenya to Mexico to the Ukraine to address their unique challenges.

 

DuPont is setting sizeable goals to help end world hunger and ensure food security that are achievable by the end of 2020.
