Cargill 2015 Annual Report
In 2015, we mark our 150th year in business. We have grown from a single grain elevator in Iowa to a company with 149,000 employees in 70 countries engaged in the essential work of nourishing people. Today, we are listening, learning and leading as we seek to meet the needs of our diverse stakeholders.
Broad challenges take collective wisdom to solve. In addressing the complexity of helping feed the world responsibly, we are seeking new perspectives and collaborative approaches that deliver wideranging benefits.
Changes in consumer preferences, technology and markets are always inspiring our customers to create new offerings and processes. We are applying fresh thinking to drive innovation that can contribute to their success.
People want to know more about the foods they eat: how and where crops are grown, whether animals are treated humanely and the wholesomeness of prepared foods. We are stepping up our efforts to build transparent, sustainable supply chains.
Committing to lead
Environmental change poses challenges for food and agriculture – from pressure on natural resources to a changing climate. We are accelerating actions to reduce our use of resources and advocating for measures to improve adaptation and resilience.
Take a Learning Journey
Today’s world is too complex for any one company to answer the question of how we will feed a growing population. For a more collaborative approach, Cargill is convening emerging leaders from global organizations to explore regional food systems firsthand and spark fresh thinking.
