Corteva has decided to withdraw from Russia. The company previously paused new sales and is initiating a plan to stop production and business activities.
“Our priorities remain the safety of our employees and global food security. Since the onset of this tragic war, we have taken all possible action to support and protect our Ukrainian colleagues and their families, our customers, and the communities in which we operate, including through direct and indirect aid to address the immediate humanitarian needs. We have also put in place direct action to help assure as normal as possible 2022 growing season in Ukraine,” the company stated.
Due to the war’s impact on global food security, Corteva will donate seeds to Ukraine, Africa, and the Middle East region for the 2023 growing season to lessen the impact on global food production.
Corteva recently moved its headquarters to Indianapolis but has a corporate presence near Wilmington at the Chestnut Run site.
