Innovation at our Core

Innovation is not limited to one team at Bunge – there is work happening across the organization that is pushing limits and creating new ways of working and new product lines to bring us into the future. We have a close eye on what is happening in our industry and in our world to discover how Bunge can play a role in the growing demand for food ingredients, oils and fats, and plant-based proteins, to finding new use for our by-products, to the cutting-edge renewable fuel space.

One of Bunge’s strengths is our culture of continuous improvement – this is not an organization at rest.  We’re constantly looking to learn from what we’ve done and have put processes in place to ensure we share best practices with colleagues around the world.  We are using technology, data and analytics to make it easier to innovate and increase efficiency, and importantly, to make it easier for our customers on both ends of the value chains to do business with us.

We are also investing aggressively in digital tools – we know we will deliver our greatest impact when our teams are fully empowered to use technology, data and new ways of working to connect farmers to consumers in smarter, faster and simpler ways. This includes investments in interconnectivity, automation and machine learning to ensure our plants run reliably and at optimal performance. In addition, we are investing in systems to increase real-time insights to help us better anticipate key market trends, manage flows and transactions. 

Most importantly, we are investing in our team. Having the right people with the right skills to make the best use of our assets and technology is what leads to our success. Our focus is on making the business well positioned to succeed - not just in the current environment, but well into the future.
