Bunge to move its global headquarters to St. Louis

The global agribusiness Bunge plans to move its headquarters 1,000 miles west from suburban New York to the St Louis, Missouri area, in the heart of the US farm belt.

bunge - Bunge to move its global headquarters to St. LouisBunge Limited, a leader in agriculture, food and ingredients, announced that it is relocating its global headquarters from White Plains, NY, to the St. Louis, MO metropolitan area. This move allows the Company to leverage shared capabilities and enhance collaboration. The company, the world’s biggest soyabean processor and a leading international grain trader, said the move would take place by next June and cost $35m-$45m in restructuring charges.
“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. The company is in the early planning stages of the transition to the new global headquarters, which is expected to be completed by the end of the second quarter 2020.
The largest share of Bunge’s assets are located in South America, where it purchases crops from farmers for processing and export. Bunge was headquartered in São Paulo, before moving to White Plains, New York in 1998 ahead of its listing on the New York Stock Exchange.
Bunge is heavily involved in sourcing, processing and supplying oilseed and grain products and ingredients. Founded in 1818, it has 31,000 employees worldwide and operates more than 360 port terminals, oilseed processing plants, grain silos, and food and ingredient production and packaging facilities around the world
