WHITE PLAINS, NY – AUGUST 13, 2019 – Bunge Limited (NYSE: BG) ("Bunge” or “the Company”), a leader in agriculture, food and ingredients, today announced that it is relocating its global headquarters from White Plains, NY, to the St. Louis, MO metropolitan area. This move allows the Company to leverage shared capabilities and enhance collaboration.
