From Greater St. Louis, Inc. CEO Jason Hall:

“This is another major global win and more evidence of the resurgence building in St. Louis. This deal strengthens Bunge’s new global headquarters here in St. Louis and further propels our metro to the forefront of the global economy.

“Greg Heckman and his team at Bunge are civic-minded leaders who are actively engaged here at Greater St. Louis, Inc. and are driving our mission forward. We are excited for the direction that the Bunge team is headed and what it means for a resurgent and more global St. Louis.

“Following Emerson’s announcement last week and Bunge’s success since relocating its headquarters from New York to St. Louis, it is a reminder that St. Louis is an exceptional location from which to base a global corporate headquarters.”
