After a week of fun, enjoying food, sights, and company information, DuPont Crop Protection representatives and their Environmental Respect guests from around the world gathered at a special gala ceremony in the Gold Room at Hotel du Pont on Thursday, July 20. Although all the gathered attendees had already won regional awards in the annual competition honoring the world’s top environmentally-friendly outlets, visitors were anxious to find out which companies among them were awarded the title of Ambassador of Respect. In all, four ag retailers from around the world were announced as “the best of the best.”
One of the winners, from the Asia Pacific region, was Narayani Agrichems from Andhra Pradesh, India. “I am humbled and contented to have our company named as an Ambassador of Respect,” said the company’s Venkata Reddy. “This is a very great honor for all of our hard working employees.”
“I am flattered that our location was named the North America Ambassador of Respect for 2017,” said MFA’s Brad Toedebusch, accepting the award. “Our company has always worked hard to achieve environmental and safety respect in our operations and it’s nice to be recognized for these efforts, many of which come from the input of our employees.”
