The company is a leading global soy and other oilseed processor, a leading South American fertilizer maker and provider, and, through subsidiary Bunge North America, a major US food and food ingredient processor. Its joint venture with DuPont (Solae), of which Bunge owns 28%, makes soy-based food ingredients.
Bunge also processes canola seed, sunflower seed, wheat, and corn. Its fertilizer operations take place mainly through its interest in Brazil-based Fosfertil. The operation involves all stages of production, from the mining of phosphate-based raw materials to the selling of blended fertilizers.
