Global agricultural sciences company FMC to donate 3% of its Ukraine sales revenue to support local farmers
FMC announces a Cultivating Freedom campaign in Ukraine to support affected agricultural businesses in de-occupied regions and ex-near frontline areas. The company promised to donate 3% of its 2023 sales revenue in Ukraine to assist with demining efforts in the impacted regions. By purchasing FMC products, everyone can now directly help Ukrainian farmers in the freed territories and Ukraine’s reconstruction, the statement reads.
“Our commitment to Ukraine and our support to local farmers goes back several decades. Today we are happy to keep building these relationships by bringing our latest technologies to the agricultural sector, and to directly help farmers safely access their fields, thus enabling them to work again,” said Sebastià Pons, FMC Vice President and company’s President of Europe Middle East and Africa region.
FMC Corporation is a global agricultural sciences company dedicated to helping growers produce food, feed, fiber and fuel for an expanding world population while adapting to a changing environment. FMC discontinued its operations and business in Russia at the very beginning of the full-scale invasion. In the current context of global instability and increasing concerns for food security, FMC is committed to supporting Ukrainian agriculture and farmers through investments in new technologies and close collaboration.
