Bunge Global Headquarters Will Be Relocating to St. Louis Soon!
Bunge Limited, a leader in agriculture, food and ingredients, has announced that they will be moving their global headquarters from White Plains, NY to the St. Louis metropolitan area. The company states that this move will allow them to better leverage shared capabilities and enhance collaboration.
The transition to St. Louis is still in its early days but is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter in 2020.
“While St. Louis is already an important hub for Bunge and our current North American operations, the city is also home to a number of food, agriculture, animal health and plant science organizations and customers, “said Gregory A. Heckman, Bunge’s CEO. “Moving the global headquarters to a location where Bunge has a major business presence is a big step forward in shifting the company’s operating model to align around a more efficient, streamlined global business structure. We are grateful to have called White Plains home for many years, and now look forward to the new growth and development opportunities which our expanded St. Louis presence will provide.”
The St. Louis Economic Development Partnership has assisted in the construction of the North American Bunge headquarters.
“The decision for Bunge to relocate their Global Operations speaks volumes to importance of our agricultural technology sector in St. Louis,” Jason Archer, Vice President of Business Development at the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership said. “We look forward to their continued success.”
