Solae Named Among ‘World’s Most Ethical’

Solae, a joint venture between DuPont and Bunge, has been recognized by the Ethisphere Institute as one of the “World’s Most Ethical (WME) Companies” for 2011. Out of a record number of award nominations, Solae secured a hard-earned spot on the list by going the extra mile, implementing principled business practices and initiatives that are instrumental to the company’s success, benefit the community and raise the bar for ethical standards within the food industry.

“To be honored for the second year as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies is both rewarding for what we have accomplished and motivating as we continue to make ethics a priority in all aspects of our business,” said Cornel Fuerer, vice president, general counsel and chief compliance officer – Solae.

Earlier in 2011, Solae received Ethics Inside™ certification from Ethisphere. This certification is given to a select group of companies that go above and beyond what is legally required of them to cultivate, maintain and communicate an exemplary culture of compliance and ethics. Only six companies received both the World’s Most Ethical and Ethics Inside™ certification.

The 2011 “World’s Most Ethical Companies” list includes 110 companies in 38 industries. Solae is on the list this year with a number of other highly-reputable companies in the food industry including General Mills, PepsiCo and Stonyfield Farm.

Solae is the world leader in developing innovative soy-based technologies and ingredients for food, meat and nutritional products.

The research-based Ethisphere Institute is a leading international think-tank dedicated to the creation, advancement and sharing of best practices in business ethics, corporate social responsibility, anti-corruption and sustainability.
