Title: Feeding the World
Ensuring that enough healthy, nutritious food is available for people everywhere is one of the most critical challenges facing humanity. DuPont collaboration and science-based solutions help solve the global challenge of food security, food production, and nutrition—to bring more, better food to more people everywhere.
From advancing the nutritional content of crops, to helping farmers and growers around the world increase food productivity, to finding better ways to ensure food security and safety, we're working every day to get more good food to more people in every corner of the world.
Our planet isn't getting any larger, but the world's population is. Every day, there are 150,000 new mouths in need of safe, nutritious food.

DuPont believes we can find science-based solutions to this global challenge by working with others.

PRESIDENT, BRAZILIAN ASSOCIATION OF NUTRITION
Collaboration among scientists, farmers and companies is very effective in developing better food for human consumption.
At DuPont, we're not only increasing crop yields with better seeds, we're also safeguarding them with innovative crop protection solutions.
The harvest has been better than ever. Now I'm teaching others what I do, and they see their lives changing as well.
After using DuPont crop protection products for just a few months, my lettuce and cabbage have no insect damage.
We provide packaging materials to reduce food waste, specialty food ingredients to improve nutritional value, and testing protocols to ensure the food we eat is safe.
DR. AMY SMITH
TECHNICAL AND REGULATORY SPECIALIST, DUPONT QUALICON
No one wants to wonder if what they're eating will make them sick. As part of DuPont Qualicon, working with USDA and government agencies around the world, we have been able to provide tools that are useful globally in the monitoring of foods.
We meet challenges by partnering with others, including scientists, farmers, and governments—all working in concert to meet our food security needs.
We call this The Global Collaboratory. Welcome.
