Cargill is one of the world’s largest globally active agricultural commodity traders, and one of the largest privately owned companies in the United States. Founded in 1865 in Iowa as a grain warehousing company, Cargill today spans much of the food and agriculture value chain, with businesses including agriculture commodity trading and processing; food ingredients and applications; meat, poultry and eggs; farmer services; animal feed and nutrition; financial, energy and industrial. Cargill operates in 70 countries and regions globally and holds market leading positions in commodities including soya beans, cocoa and palm oil.
Cargill is mostly active in the agricultural products and animal proteins segments. It clearly outperforms most of its peers in both segments, particularly in the environment and nutrition measurement areas. However, while it still ranks above average in the social inclusion measurement, it is where the company has more opportunity to improve relative to its leading peers.
