In a first-ever collaboration on emergency hunger relief, leading global agribusiness and food companies Cargill, Bunge, ADM and Louis Dreyfus Company are partnering to prevent famine and contain the spread of hunger in East Africa. The companies support helps WFP—the world’s leading humanitarian agency fighting global hunger—reach tens of thousands of families in East Africa. WFP has launched a coordinated response to conflict-induced famine in South Sudan, and to acute malnutrition in Somalia, Ethiopia and Kenya, where drought has destroyed thousands of acres of crops and left millions of families in need of emergency food assistance. Bunge Limited is a leading global agribusiness and food company operating in over 40 countries with approximately 32,000 employees.
