Strategic Sourcing

We are a strategic sourcing function focused on solutions-oriented suppliers that provide goods and services to Cargill.

This includes, but is not limited to, such areas of spending as the following:

  • Maintenance as well as plant equipment and services
  • Chemicals & processing aids
  • Non-traded ingredients
  • Packaging
  • Corporate materials and services, including information technology
