Products and Services 


Cargill Paraguay commercializes more than 1.3 million tons of soy, wheat and corn a year. This volume is a little more than 30 percent of the total harvest of the country. 

The origination team works in close contact with farmers assisting them throughout the production chain. We have 20 country elevators spread all over the farming region of the country. 


Cargill Paraguay has a factory that processes 900,000 tons of soy a year, thus having the largest installed capacity in Paraguay. Soy flours with a high protein content, soy fiber and soy degummed oil are in this output.

Our processing business holds an international food safety certification for continuous commitment to health. The quality of the proteic flours produced entitles it to acceptance on the most demanding markets around the world. Almost all of the production of proteic flour and degummed oil is exported using a port of its own and another, which it operates exclusively. 

We are a leader in the responsible care of the environment, which has earned us recognition from other industrial companies in Paraguay.
