Cargill in China

Cargill’s business in China can be traced back to the early 1970s, shortly after the release of the first Sino-U.S. Joint Communiqué. Today, we have 50 plus business locations and around 7,000 employees in mainland China. Our businesses in China include grain and oilseed supply chain, animal nutrition, animal protein, starches and sweeteners, edible oils solutions, texturizing solutions, structured finance, energy, metals and transportation.

Cargill is in a unique position to contribute its global expertise to assist China’s ongoing efforts to raise the incomes of rural population and boost countryside development. In addition, Cargill’s contributions are aligned with China’s commitment to increasing farmers’ incomes, promoting sustainable agriculture, as well as a secure and safe food supply. Cargill helps China achieve these commitments by improving efficiency and adding value in the production, processing, distribution, as well as trade of food and agriculture products.

Pioneering and Promoting China’s Agricultural Industry

Cargill is committed to bringing our world-leading technology, expertise and ideas to China. Our efforts have been dedicated to the modernization of China’s agriculture industries while advancing rural development through technological upgrades.

Supporting Rural Development and Boosting Rural Incomes

At Cargill, we believe helping advancements in China’s rural areas also means raising the incomes of rural residents. Our worldwide experience enables us to make unique contributions in the ways of improving quality of life. It has always been a top priority engaging full-time agricultural scientists to provide trainings for Chinese farmers and to help them increase income.

Upholding and Advocating Food Safety Management

Our goal is to provide high quality, safe food no matter when and where. We employ a single-system approach of highest standard for food safety in all Cargill locations across the globe.

Innovating and Demonstrating a Circular Economy

Cargill is committed to transitioning to a restorative, circular model – utilizing the entire business ecosystem. We design biological and technical components of products to fit within a materials cycle, and all for disassembly and re-purposing. Our aim is to not only focus on renewable energy but to move towards zero waste – the core principle of a circular economy.
