How We Help


Roughly 30% of our food is wasted annually, generating close to 1.3 billion tons of food waste. This amounts to losses of roughly US $1 trillion globally. DuPont enzymes can help extend the shelf life of food and reduce food waste. This avoids environmental emissions associated with decomposing food waste and wasted resources.

Our meat and culinary processing enzymes support these objectives of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
