Across our supply chains, Cargill acts responsibly and collaborates to tackle economic, environmental and social challenges as we work toward greater sustainability in agriculture. We promote responsible agricultural practices, conserve resources through innovation, use renewable raw materials and reduce impacts to help protect the environment. We take a comprehensive and science-based approach to ensure the safety and integrity of our food products. We handle animals humanely. And we treat our employees with dignity and respect, providing safe, secure and healthy work environments.

We promote the best, most responsible agricultural practices, including working closely with farmers to increase yields sustainably and treat animals humanely.

We are supporting efforts to help farmers adopt sustainable agricultural management practices, improve land use, increase the quality and quantity of their crops, and promote safe and efficient working practices. In rural areas where education and literacy levels are low, information and training is improving farming methods and efficiencies in pesticide and fertilizer use, and increasing farmers’ incomes.

We are committed to safeguarding the wholesomeness and integrity of the food we produce and sell.

Food safety is fundamental to Cargill’s ongoing business. Our goal is to provide high quality, safe food every time, everywhere. We recognize that our work in this important area is never done. Every day we work to earn the trust of our customers and consumers, beginning with the safety of the products we produce and extending to improving food safety around the world.

We employ innovative approaches to conserve resources, use renewable raw materials and reduce impacts to help preserve and protect the environment.

Cargill is committed to nourishing the world’s growing population while at the same time protecting the planet. Since crops that feed people and animals alike require clean water, air, soil and light to thrive, we must continue being responsible stewards of our planet’s natural resources. Cargill’s ongoing success requires our commitment to protect the environment every day.

We respect people and human rights by treating our employees with dignity and respect and providing safe, secure and health work environments.

The clearest demonstration of our respect for our employees, contractors, suppliers, partners, customers and neighbors is an unyielding commitment to safety. To ensure that our employees have a safe and healthy workplace, we implement various programs and operate around a set of five-year goals to monitor our progress and adapt new safety practices.
