Our client is a leading agribusiness and food company with operations in approximately 40 countries worldwide. Their more than 35,000 employees contribute by helping farmers produce larger harvests by ensuring a seamless connection between farmers and customers and among regions and by producing high-quality products ranging from animal feed to consumer foods to renewable fuels.
