Agricultural commodity trading & processing
We connect producers and users of grain, oilseeds and other agricultural commodities through origination, processing, marketing and distribution capabilities and services.
Grains & Oilseeds
We operate on an integrated global basis to source, process, transport and distribute grain and oilseeds around the world. The main bulk products we handle are wheat, corn, oilseeds, barley and sorghum, as well as vegetable oils and meals. We have developed significant expertise in handling identity preserved and differentiated products that sustain their distinctiveness in overseas markets.
Because we charter more than 150 million metric tons of dry bulk tonnage, we have the logistical flexibility and opportunity to leverage efficiencies in the supply chain. We also work closely with Cargill's finance and risk management businesses to offer a range of financial and hedging products to the products and services offered.
We produce and market biodiesel and ethanol from a range of feedstocks for customers in Europe, Latin America and North America.
Cargill Sugar trades raw sugar in bulk, white sugar in bags or containers, and ethanol from offices located in Geneva, Hong Kong, Minneapolis, Minnesota and Amsterdam. We originate sugar from the world’s leading sugar producing countries, including Brazil, where we co-own and operate two major sugar export terminals, handling bulk and bags.
We ship and distribute sugar to customers, industrials, distributors and end-users through offices in Egypt, India, China, Russia, Ukraine and other consuming countries worldwide.
