Meet the teams leading the way.
We’re in one of the greatest growth industries of our era. There’s a growing global population, an emerging middle class and an increased demand for food. And we have to say, we’re excited.
To Our Stakeholders
2014 was a record-setting year.
Our strong results were driven by solid performance in our existing businesses, plus the pursuit of new opportunities in agribusiness and food production. The results also highlight the value of our unique position as a farm-to-market business, offering distinctive products and services that help farmers produce more food using fewer resources in an increasingly sustainable manner.
