Bunge's role in the world, our mission as a company, is to enhance lives by improving the global food and agribusiness production chain: to help farmers grow more crops, to transport and process those commodities efficiently and safely, and to create affordable, high-quality food products that people trust and enjoy.
We are committed to fulfilling our mission by building the world's best food and agribusiness company.
We have four clear strategies for achieving this goal:
- Strengthen core businesses
we will continue to invest to capture strong growth in agribusiness, fertilizer and food products.
- Leverage existing positions to enter complementary value chains
we will leverage our assets and expertise to expand into complementary value chains in which we can achieve competitive advantage.
- Enhance efficiency and customer focus
we will improve efficiency and customer focus to compete at the highest level.
- Leverage our decentralized but integrated approach
we will balance decentralization and integration – local action and a global perspective – to produce the best results.
Maintaining integrated but decentralized operations means striking a balance between the efficiency of a global corporation and the speed of a local business, between the value of a world perspective and the insights and customer relationships born of local knowledge and experience.
That is why we emphasize our purpose – enhancing lives by improving the agribusiness and food production – and our values. Our purpose ensures we are aligned and moving in a common direction. Our values ensure the communication and trust necessary for a network of businesses to operate with latitude and individual initiative and leadership, while each contributing to the same goal.
Our approach is built upon a set of core values. Taken together, these values define an organization that believes in:
§ Making decisions at the local level, where understanding of the marketplace is greatest and efficiency easiest to achieve;
§ Improving service by building lasting relationships with customers in their own language and customs;
§ Motivating entrepreneurial employees toward common goals rather than directing them from the top down; and
§ Engendering a sense of commitment and openness.

Ukraine is reemerging as one of the world’s true breadbaskets. In normal year, the country produces roughly 35 million tones of grain, of which it exports nearly 30%. It is also an attractive market for edible oil consumption.
Bunge operates a fully integrated crushing, refining and bottling plant and four grain elevators in Ukraine. Our plant produces Oleina (www.oleina.com) brand bottled refined sunflower oil for Ukrainian, Russian and CIS markets. We have 14 branches nationwide managing local distribution of Oleina and 10 branches managing procurement of sunseed and grains. And, along with our partner, we are in the process of building a new oil extraction plant in Illichevsk that is capable of processing sunseed, rapeseed or soybeans.
Quality of Oleina, the leader of the Ukrainian market of sunflower oil, has received not only a national recognition, but a wide acknowledgement of professionals as well. Among awards - a gold medal of national competition "Vysshaya Proba", a medal «The Best Trade Mark of Ukraine " and a victory in national competition of quality.
