DuPont Heading To Gulfood 2012
DuPont (NYSE:DD) is calling for science and partnerships to battle against the challenges of the global food industry at the Gulfood 2012 Conference.
DuPont has committed to invest US$10 billion in research and development dedicated to the food, agriculture and nutrition sectors and to advance 4,000 new products by the end of 2020.
Heike van de Kerkhof, Director DuPont (NYSE:DD) Packaging & Industrial Polymers, Europe, Middle East and Africa [EMEA] and Food Growth Director, EMEA, said that, “At DuPont (NYSE:DD), we believe that science and innovation is the key to solving the world’s biggest challenges. However, no one company or organization can possibly solve these issues alone. That’s why DuPont (NYSE:DD) need the help of local academic institutions, governments, NGOS, our customers and others to collaborate to develop innovative solutions. Although science provides universal answers, solutions must be local due to variations in climate, soils, cultural traditions, and other factors”.
Dupont (NYSE:DD) shares were at 51.60 at the end of the last day’s trading. There’s been a 10.9% change in the stock price over the past 3 months.
