Global Food Security in the spotlight at the Indiana State Fair

Last Friday, I spent the morning with industry leaders, U.S. farmers and DuPont employees at the Indiana State Fair. We were on hand for the opening of the DuPont Food Pavilion.

It’s always encouraging to hear people of all walks of life talk about the challenge of feeding the world and the important role farmers play in meeting that challenge head-on. Indiana’s Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman, David Lowe, farmer and Vice President of the Indiana Soybean Alliance, as well as Andre Lacey, Chair of the Indiana State Fair Commission, each touched on the importance of collaboration at many levels to help solve world hunger.

Many people from a variety of organizations need to be engaged in this work. The collective efforts of many are a crucial factor as we address world hunger.

Every day I’m reminded of the positive role farmers play in this challenge of global food security and visiting with our employees and farmers on the ground in Indiana brought that home again. Solutions have to be focused on the local farmer to truly drive sustainable, tangible benefits.
