Destrehan Dock Rebuild to Improve Export Productivity & Capacity

We’re making good progress overhauling Bunge’s dock in Destrehan, Louisiana. The project is designed to improve the port’s export productivity by replacing ship loaders, dock and related infrastructure.

Strategically located on the Mississippi River in the Port of South Louisiana, Destrehan is one of Bunge’s busiest ports and a key part of our global winning footprint. The site, which includes a Bunge-owned soybean crushing facility, handles soybeans, corn, wheat and sorghum from over 50 grain elevators along the Mississippi River. These crops, along with soybean meal and soybean oil, are exported to our customers in Asia, Europe, Latin America and the Middle East.
