DuPont Leader Praises Farmers for Helping Solve the Global Food Challenge



DuPont Executive Vice President James C. Borel praised U.S. farmers and their families for their contributions to address global food security and stressed the importance of more collaboration at the opening of a pavilion focused on food and agriculture at the Indiana State Fair today.

“The challenges to feeding the world grow more complex each day, but I am optimistic that together we can bring real solutions to address them. No one company, region, government or organization can do this alone,” said Borel. “Farmers, in particular, play an important role in helping to feed the world; and I realize this year, they are facing a number of challenges. But I am confident that farmers will continue to rise up to meet the needs of a growing population.”

Borel spoke to farmers, industry leaders and youth at the new DuPont Food Pavilion designed to engage fair-goers in the food security mission by showcasing products grown in Indiana for the local and global marketplace, including grains, proteins and other nutritious food. The Pavilion also connects consumers with important information about global food security through interactive activities and encourages them to support efforts to ensure enough food for our growing population.

“I hope that attendees are inspired to join the fight against hunger,” Borel said. “We need to engage as many people, sectors and institutions as possible to help find local solutions to this global challenge.”

The Pavilion is open for the duration of the Indiana State Fair, which runs from August 3 - 19, and is available for use year-round. The Pavilion will feature interactive opportunities to learn more about the many dynamics of food, healthy and nutritious eating, agriculture, food production and youth education.
