Food Chain Partnership

We bring farmers, food producers, traders and food retailers together in our Food Chain Partnership projects. It is our approach to contribute to food quality and safety.

Our Food Chain Partnership initiative expresses our belief that together with our partners in the food chain we can build trustful relationships that benefit everyone.

What is Food Chain Partnership?

Food Chain Partnership
Food Chain Partnership is an innovative business model where farmers, food exporters and importers, processors and retailers work together on optimized crop solutions according to sustainable agricultural principles for the benefit of all partners involved. These benefits differ according to the key interests of our partners and range from enhancing product quality and increasing agricultural yields up to expanding marketing opportunities and improving traceability. However, the overall and common goal is the sustainable production of abundant and nutritious food. Currently, we run more than 240 projects in 30 countries worldwide focusing on 40 different crops, such as fruits, vegetable, wheat and rice.  In these collaborations, we offer our customers – according to their needs – a tailored crop solution consisting of high-quality seeds, effective crop protection, and expertise in environmental protection, efficiency and safety.

Thus, we are striving to help feed our hungry planet by increasing productivity of the world´s most important staple crops, such as rice and wheat. We focus on improving resource efficiency of agriculture (water, soil, agricultural inputs) and offer excellence in Product Stewardship and safe-use trainings of applicators to mitigate potential impact on people and the environment.
