Global Harvest Initiative (GHI) was formed in 2009 as a private-sector policy voice to increase the productivity and sustainability of agricultural value chains for food, feed, fiber and biofuel. We believe the right policies, practices and technologies improve global food security and nutrition, accelerate productivity, reduce waste and loss, conserve natural resources and mitigate climate change.
GHI advocates a comprehensive approach that emphasizes increased productivity, access to nutritious food, improving livelihoods for producers and strengthening the resilience of food and agriculture systems.
GHI’s member companies are Corteva Agriscience™, the Agriculture Division of DowDuPont, John Deere, Monsanto Company (acquired by Bayer AG), The Mosaic Company and Smithfield Foods.
Our work is enhanced by contributions from consultative partners who share their knowledge and experience in agriculture, conservation, nutrition and the needs of small-scale farmers: 9b Group, ACDI/VOCA, Congressional Hunger Center, Conservation International, Farm Foundation, Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition, Inter-American Development Bank, Inter-American Institute for Cooperation in Agriculture, The Nature Conservancy, New Markets Lab, Purdue University School of Agriculture, Robert B. Daugherty Water for Food Global Institute at the University of Nebraska, and Supporters of Agricultural Research (SoAR) Foundation.
