Our purpose: Feeding the future

Our purpose of ‘Feeding the future’ is based on the challenge of feeding a global population that’s forecast to reach almost 10 billion people by 2050. The fast-growing world population, increased urbanisation, a growing middle class and changing diets will lead to a surge in demand for protein, especially in emerging markets. Our ambition is to contribute to meeting the rising food needs in a sustainable manner. We will do this by constantly seeking innovative ways to raise the efficiency and nutritional value of our products, the productivity of our activities and those of our customers, and to reduce the environmental impact of our value chains. Sustainability is not just what we aspire to do, it’s what we do.
