LA PLACE, La. — Lynda Van Davis, the recently appointed Counsel and Head of External Affairs for Greenfield, Louisiana, affirmed the company’s dedication to community and environmental stewardship in light of the St. John the Baptist Parish Council’s transparent zoning process for the new Greenfield Grain Export facility. Davis, a former federal prosecutor and Louisiana District Court Judge, emphasized Greenfield’s pledge to foster long-term economic growth and environmental sustainability in the West Bank area.

The proposed state-of-the-art grain terminal in Wallace, LA, aims to transition the West Bank towards a more sustainable and prosperous economy, mindful of the area’s rich natural, cultural, and historical heritage. Central to Greenfield’s mission is addressing the historical environmental injustices affecting local Black communities and establishing the facility as North America’s leading environmentally conscious grain export terminal.

Greenfield’s initiatives promise significant economic benefits, including workforce development programs in collaboration with West St. John High School, the creation of numerous good-paying, safe green jobs, increased local business activity, and substantial new tax revenue generation. These efforts underscore Greenfield’s long-term commitment to revitalizing and enriching the community while respecting and preserving its unique heritage.
