Where We Work

Globally Present, Locally Driven

Our roots stem from a private sector agribusiness in America’s heartland. Our projects, partnerships and local insights cross continents. These factors steer how we work to strengthen global agricultural markets. But, you don’t have to take our word for it. Learn more about individual projects below.

Farmer-to-Farmer Food Safety and Quality

Facilitating volunteer assignments to agribusinesses with a focus on food safety and quality

Bangladesh, Egypt and Lebanon face considerable food safety and quality challenges. To increase productivity and profi tability in the agriculture sectors, we are implementing F2F FSQ to address the important issues of food safety and quality with highly qualified volunteers. Volunteers assist and train others on good agricultural, veterinary and manufacturing practices in order to improve the local food safety protocols and quality assurance systems from “field-to-fork.”

Volunteers and our local employees work in each country to increase the awareness of the F2F program as a way to build deeper connections to the communities we are supporting. We also support, coach and mentor our returned volunteers on how they can best share their experiences with personal and professional networks.

Since 1987, we have sent more than 1,400 U.S. highly qualified volunteers — including 166 of our affiliate Land O’Lakes, Inc. staff  and cooperative members — on assignments in 27 countries. As a quality-driven food company, Land O’Lakes, Inc. is uniquely positioned to drive improvements in food safety and quality by offering a broad range of agricultural technical expertise.
