Achieving global food security is central to Nutrien’s Purpose to grow our world from the ground up, and the Global Institute for Food Security (GIFS) is doing incredibly important work in this area. Saskatchewan is one of the world’s strongest agri-science ecosystems, and we’re proud to partner with GIFS, the Province and the University of Saskatchewan, to help bring innovations to market that will help farmers succeed in sustainably feeding a growing planet to realize Nutrien’s Feeding the Future plan commitments.
