The Next Global Breadbasket, Latin America & Food Security

Recently, the Global Harvest Initiative (GHI) released a report, The Next Global Breadbasket: How Latin America Can Feed the World, which reviews the potential of increasing sustainable ag in the region.

In the report, GHI in partnership with the Inter-American Development Bank, outlines the potential that exists across the Latin America and the Caribbean region for a more productive and environmentally sustainable ag system, the obstacles and challenges that stand in the way of realizing that potential, and how private and public sectors can move forward together.

Included in the paper, how DuPont is working with smallholder dairy farmers in Latin America to reduce milk waste at dairy farms and to help them produce quality cheese more consistently and hygienically. DuPont™ Danisco® Marschall® brand rennet is a complex enzyme in a simple tablet form that modifies milk protein to form a curd and make cheese. Local DuPont employees work collaboratively with Latin American farmers to implement this technology on their smallholder operations to bring stability and profitability to rural regions.

DuPont is proud to support the Global Harvest Initiative as it pursues solutions to feed the world.
