We operate in hundreds of communities around the world and value our relationship with our neighbors, taking part in local activities and buying from nearby farms.
Citizenship is one of our core values and guides everything we do. To commemorate our bicentennial, Bunge employees around the world engaged in special volunteer projects in their communities.
