Bunge Ltd., a leader in agriculture, food and ingredients, announced that it is relocating its global headquarters from White Plains, N.Y., to the St. Louis, Mo., metropolitan area. This move allows the company to leverage shared capabilities and enhance collaboration.
"While St. Louis is already an important hub for Bunge and our current North American operations, the city is also home to a number of food, agriculture, animal health and plant science organizations and customers," Bunge chief executive officer Gregory A. Heckman said. "Moving the global headquarters to a location where Bunge has a major business presence is a big step forward in shifting the company's operating model to align around a more efficient, streamlined, global business structure. We are grateful to have called White Plains home for many years and now look forward to the new growth and development opportunities, which our expanded St. Louis presence will provide."
The company is in the early planning stages of the transition to the new global headquarters, which is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter of 2020.
Founded in 1818, Bunge sources, processes and supplies oilseed and grain products and ingredients globally. The company is headquartered in New York and has 31,000 employees worldwide at more than 360 port terminals, oilseed processing plants, grain silos and food and ingredient production and packaging facilities around the world.
