WASHINGTON – Syngenta has been recognized by Fast Company magazine as one of the world's most innovative companies.
Syngenta was one of the select companies recognized from thousands reviewed by Fast Company magazine in its annual evaluation of "the creativity at work in the global marketplace." Syngenta was included in Fast Company's rankings of the ten most innovative food companies, where it ranked sixth and was the only global agribusiness recognized.
Fast Company's innovation rankings are based on its editorial team's analysis of thousands of businesses across the globe. The rankings factor in not only revenue growth and profit margins, but also take into account "creative models and progressive cultures," according to the magazine's announcement of this year's honorees.
Syngenta was recognized for its innovation in developing genetically modified seed and crop protection products that are helping farmers improve crop yield around the world to meet the global challenge of feeding an increasing population with reduced land and water resources while minimizing environmental impact.
