Across many different markets and industries, we work every day to help the world thrive.
Call us optimistic. We believe the world eats better when we eat together. Starting from a single grain elevator in Iowa, our passion has always been to bring producers and consumers of food closer to one another.
Nourishing the world
Our team of 160,000 professionals in 70 countries draws together the worlds of food, agriculture, nutrition and risk management. For more than 150 years, we have helped farmers grow more, connecting them to broader markets. We are continuously developing products that give consumers just what they’re seeking, advancing nutrition, food safety and sustainability. And we help all of our partners innovate and manage risk, so they can nourish the world again tomorrow.
How we work
