Elanco And Heifer Partner To Reduce Hunger

In an effort to solve world hunger problems, Elanco Animal Helath will partner up with Heifer International.

Elanco Animal Health has launched an initiative to bring 100,000 families around the world out of hunger by 2025 through a partnership with Heifer International.

Jeff Simmons, president of Elanco, is expected to outline the company’s commitment to hunger during a briefing June 2 at 10:30 p.m. to 11 a.m. EST at Elanco Animal Health in Greenfield, Ind.

Elanco initiated projects with Heifer International in Indonesia and Zambia that will impact more than 8,000 families, according to the company. Elanco is expected to  unveil their third community during the briefing.

Pierre Ferrari, CEO, Heifer International, will be on hand to talk about the impact a single animal can have on families and communities in emerging economies and detail why the Elanco partnership is unique.

As the world population grows, food insecurity could become an increasing problem, Elanco states, adding that globally, 25,000 people die each day from hunger and malnutrition. In the U.S., one in five children do not eat enough each day.
