WHO WE ARE
A LIVING HERITAGE
Food is fundamental.
Everyone, everywhere needs healthy meals to lead productive and prosperous lives. The global agrifood chain—the essential steps by which food is grown, transported, stored, processed, distributed and marketed around the world—sustains families, societies, economies and nations.
And that chain depends, in important ways, on the work we do every day at Bunge.
Bunge serves the world by connecting harvests to homes. Just as we have, in changing ways through changing times, for 200 years. It is our business to realize the tremendous potential within each grain and oilseed, and to unlock and increase that value at every step: through every shipment, every trade, every process improvement and product innovation.
We see our work as a huge opportunity and an important responsibility, a proud heritage and a deep commitment. Producing high-quality, safe products, and acting as a reliable and trusted partner to farmers, customers and consumers, we maximize the value of the agrifood chain for communities, shareholders and ourselves.
A TRULY GLOBAL TEAM
Bunge is the sum of many cultures, languages and backgrounds. Since our founding in 1818, we have been headquartered in five different countries and three continents. Each is a part of us.
For Bunge, being a diverse, multicultural team is both part of our DNA and a conscious choice. Today we call over 40 nations home, and place a high value on forging the bonds—among colleagues and with customers and partners—that are a competitive advantage in a world that is defined, more and more, by the ability to bridge local and global, to connect and collaborate.
We pride ourselves on the local relationships we have built and on our firsthand understanding of the agricultural markets, food and ingredient industries, and consumer trends in the places where we operate. We believe local managers can do amazing things when they have responsibility for their operations and serve farmers and customers directly.
But there is no lone outpost at Bunge. Our purpose, vision and operations reach across oceans, and encompass hundreds of facilities, thousands of employees and billions of customers. We forge the links that make value chains work, connecting local goods with international markets, and farmers with consumers. Every element of our enterprise serves an important purpose, and we succeed only when every part of the Bunge system works, and works together.
Teamwork is essential. To foster collaboration and stay aligned, we must extend and expect trust. We must listen to one another and be open to ideas, no matter where in the world those ideas originate. For all of our diversity, we are driving toward the same fundamental goals.
