Cargill completed its acquisition of Royal Nedalco's alcohol business from its parent company Royal Cosun on April 1, 2011. 

Cargill and Nedalco – whose operating plants are adjacent to each other in both the Netherlands and the UK – have been business partners for many years. Cargill's wheat processing plants supply Nedalco with raw materials for its alcohol production process. 

Nedalco's high-quality alcohol is used in multiple industrial applications in the spirit, food, pharmaceutical, chemical and cosmetics industries. For the spirit industry, the company's alcohol is used as a superior ingredient. In the non spirit segment, the alcohol has a wide range of applications, from flavours and perfumes to mouthwash, disinfectants and printing ink.
