WHITE PLAINS, N.Y., Feb. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Bunge Limited (NYSE: BG)
today announced that Alberto Weisser will retire as chief executive officer
(CEO) effective June 1, 2013. The board of directors has appointed Soren
Schroder, currently CEO of Bunge North America, to succeed Mr. Weisser as CEO
of the company, and expects Mr. Schroder to become a director before June 1.
The board also appointed Mr. Weisser as executive chairman, serving until
December 31, 2013.

"Alberto has guided Bunge through one of the most significant and successful
eras in its nearly 200-year history," stated L. Patrick Lupo, deputy chairman
and lead independent director, Bunge Limited. "Under his leadership, Bunge
became a public company and grew from a regional operation to a global player,
active in over 40 countries and with leading positions in key products and
markets. Most importantly, however, Alberto helped instill the culture and
approach that form the foundation of the company, and developed the talented
team that is responsible for its success. We thank Alberto for his tremendous
contributions to Bunge. We are fortunate to have a successor in Soren who can
step into this role and ensure the business continues its strong momentum."

Mr. Weisser joined Bunge in 1993 as chief financial officer. He was appointed
CEO in January 1999 and chairman in July 1999. Bunge listed its shares on the
New York Stock Exchange in August 2001. Since its listing, the company's
enterprise value has increased over 5.5 times, its stock price has increased
by nearly 500% and total shareholder returns have averaged 16.4% per year[1].

"Soren is a proven leader, and has been instrumental to Bunge's growth and
success since he joined the company in 2000," stated Mr. Weisser. "He helped
build our global agribusiness marketing and trading operation, developed our
agribusiness franchise in Europe and the Middle East, and as CEO of Bunge
North America since 2010, has managed our complete value chain, including
agribusiness, edible oils and milling, in a key region. In addition to an
excellent track record as a commercial and operational manager, Soren
possesses unparalleled industry expertise, market insight and understanding of
our customers' needs. He lives and breathes this business, having spent his
entire professional life in the agribusiness and food sector. His appointment
is the culmination of a thoughtful and deliberate succession planning

As CEO of Bunge North America, Mr. Schroder leads Bunge's business operations
in the United States, Canada and Mexico. Since joining Bunge, he has served in
a variety of agribusiness leadership roles at the company, including as
protein director, Bunge Global Markets, based in White Plains, NY; managing
director, Europe for Bunge Global Markets; and vice president, agribusiness
for Bunge Europe. Prior to joining Bunge, he worked for over 15 years at
Continental Grain and Cargill, in positions in Europe and North America.

"It is an honor to have the opportunity to build on the exceptional foundation
Alberto has established and to lead Bunge's talented team," stated Mr.
Schroder. "What we do has never been more important to the world, and there
are tremendous opportunities to grow the business, create value for
shareholders and deliver for our customers. I look forward to a smooth and
productive transition with Alberto as executive chairman."
