Agribusiness Bunge Commits $2.5M to Fight Coronavirus

American agribusiness Bunge announced plans Monday to provide $2.5 million in funding for programs that aim to relieve health and hunger issues during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“As we continue our responsibility to deliver food and feed products around the world, we want to further support the fight against COVID-19 with this contribution,” the firm’s chief executive officer, Greg Heckman, said in a press release. “The safety and well-being of our employees and their families, and the communities in which [we] live and operate remains a critical priority for our company.”

The announcement comes as other prominent agribusiness players have pledged to offer their support to combat the virus. Cargill recently said it plans to donate disinfecting alcohol produced at the Sas van Gent plant in Zeeland, Netherlands to the Dutch healthcare system. In late March, Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) committed $1 million to several organizations working on COVID-19 response efforts.
