At Cargill, sustainability infuses every part of our business.

Our ambition is to have the most sustainable food supply chains in the world

From small family farms to global shipping lanes, Cargill works every day to implement new sustainable practices to reduce our impact on the planet and protect people. Through our long history, we have seen agriculture be part of the solution to the world’s most urgent challenges. We know that we must address climate change and conserve water and forests, while meeting the rising demand for food. We feel a deep responsibility to protect the planet and its people, to ensure a cleaner, safer future for generations to come.

Our purpose is to nourish the world in a safe, responsible and sustainable way

Consumers buying animal products are increasingly interested in how animals are raised, what they are fed and the environmental impact of production. Sustainable food systems are needed to serve changing consumer preferences and to protect the planet. To keep a steady market for your product, you need to provide customers with assurance. That’s where Cargill Animal Nutrition come in. Our global network of scientists are dedicated to finding solutions for emerging sustainability challenges.
