INFORMATION & IDEAS

DuPont partnered with the African Biofortified Sorghum Project (ABS) to improve the global food security of millions who rely on sorghum as their primary diet.

Around the globe, DuPont scientists work in concert with farmers, local businesses, governments, NGOs and others who know the “facts on the ground” in order to find the answers that will increase food protection and production.

The challenges we face in feeding the world will get only more daunting in the decades to come. But DuPont and its collaborators across the food chain are optimistic, as scientific innovations have already significantly enhanced the quality and quantity of food production.

With increased oil stability, Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil enables food manufacturers and fast-food restaurants to meet consumer demand for healthier products without sacrificing performance. It has 0g trans fat, less saturated fat, and the highest amount of heart-healthy monounsaturated fat available in soy.

Although science provides answers that can be applied universally, DuPont experience shows that solutions for local food systems must be developed at a community level.

Pioneer® brand Plenish™ high oleic soybeans will benefit farmers, the food industry, and consumers. In addition to the strong agronomics growers demand, Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil offers the food industry high stability combined with a healthier oil profile. Consumers will be able to enjoy the foods they've always loved with 0g trans fat.

DuPont Pioneer helps Chinese farmers to increase productivity and efficiency with better seeds and improved single kernel planting technology.

The soybean oil nutrition profile of Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil can help meet the trans fat challenge while providing exceptional stability for food preparation.

For DuPont, sustainable food production means more than expanding the food supply. It also encompasses social, economic and ecological considerations, such as infrastructure, storage, waste reduction and improving and preserving water quality—all of which are critical to achieving global food security.
