Food Chain Partnership
Working Together Toward a Sustainable Food System

The future requires that we develop innovative new solutions — and we can’t do it alone. It takes a wide variety of experts, ideas, and perspectives to shape the future by shaping agriculture, which is why our Food Chain Partnership is such a critical endeavor. 

 

Collective insight for the common good

As an innovative platform to promote partnerships and address challenges throughout our food system, our Food Chain Partnership brings together farmers, food processors, retailers, traders, and others along the food value chain to work together for sustainable agriculture. 

 

By sharing collective insights, goals, and resources, everyone contributes in tangible Food Chain Partnership initiatives to improved sustainability, food safety, quality, yields, and transparency.

 

Making change all over the world

At Bayer, we’re proud to have roughly 70 Food Chain managers working in 44 countries. Combined, these experts focus on 76 different crops to broaden our network and bring its benefits to more people — particularly in helping cultivate new opportunities for smallholder farmers.
