While the rest of the world has made significant progress towards achieving food security, Africa, in particular Sub-Saharan Africa, continues to lag behind. The ever increasing population is also posing huge challenges in providing a secure food future to the present generation and the next.
DuPont believes that with inclusive innovation Africa can address the challenge of food security. At DuPont Africa, science is hard at work to deliver innovative food and nutrition solutions in the areas of food enzymes and ingredients, animal nutrition, soy protein isolates, food safety detection and packaging solutions. DuPont is working with local producers and food value chain companies to provide host of innovative solutions. By developing next-generation materials, nurturing local innovation and forming new research partnerships, DuPont is seeking newer Horizons to help Africa feed good food to more people. We invite you to collaborate with us to help secure Africa’s food future. Some recent examples of such partnerships include:
- The Africa Bio-Fortified Sorghum collaboration with Africa Harvest
- Working with USAID to launch the Ghana Advanced Maize Seed Adoption Program
- Partnering with The EIU to commission the Global Food Security Index
- Supporting agriculture system development in Ethiopia with USAID
Let’s get in touch so that we can look forward to working together to help advance Africa’s economic transformation.
