Today we celebrate World Health Day, with WHO highlighting the challenges and opportunities associated with food safety under the slogan “From farm to plate, make food safe.”
At DuPont, food security is at the heart of our priorities. Across the globe, DuPont businesses – DuPont Pioneer, Crop Protection, Nutrition & Health, Packaging & Industrial Polymers, and Industrial Biosciences–are addressing food security with science-based innovations. We are building collaborations with businesses, non-profit organizations and
