From Seed To Table: Delivering Novel Traits
When you need a plant-based ingredient with specific attributes — one that makes your product perform or taste the way it should, how do you ensure that the ingredient will be consistent in performance and quality? And, how do you assure an adequate supply of the ingredient?
Cargill provides a unique solution. Our deep understanding of plant breeding and agronomy techniques enables us to develop and/or deliver plants capable of yielding the novel trait you want to bring to market. This expertise, combined with our broad reach across the supply chain and our deep participation and relationships in each of its components, helps ensure consistency of ingredient quality and supply. Risk to your supply is reduced. And technical and commercial barriers to successful commercialization are lowered.
Developing the novel trait, then getting it to market
The combination of three key capabilities gives us the ability to optimize novel plant-based traits through the supply chain:
Technical expertise, including plant breeding and agronomy to optimize the attributes needed to ensure consistent quality and quantity of crop production. Our expertise also extends to the development of effective analytical testing to ensure correct measurement of the attribute or characteristic.
Implementation knowledge and integration experience built on our long history as a participant in plant-based supply chains and the application of our quality assurance and production methodologies across the entire supply chain. Also important to our customers is the experience we bring in navigating the scientific and regulatory environment and providing manufacturing process solutions.
High-performance execution — you can count on us to deliver your novel ingredient. Our high-performance execution has led to the development and delivery of innovations such as no trans-fats solutions for a number of food industry customers.
