Cargill researchers engage in science that will enable future product development in foods, meats, feeds and biofuels and bioindustrial products. A major emphasis of Cargill’s research is on healthier and more environmentally friendly solutions.
We offer our scientific resources as an extension of your in-house capabilities. We also welcome co-innovation opportunities through joint development agreements.
When you need an entirely new or an improved product or production process, Cargill’s development experts provide the knowledge, experience and resources to make it happen. Our development professionals specialize in designing, testing and piloting new or improved products and/or processes.
Cargill’s applications teams can assist you with laboratory or pilot work on finished products and with production start-up. Their services are invaluable in helping develop new solutions, achieve better pricing for your products and get to market more quickly.
Our applications specialists are on the ground around the world — in the Americas, Europe (also serving Africa and the Middle East) and Asia. Their proximity to you and your customers ensures knowledge of local regulatory and sourcing challenges — and sensitivity to local trends, tastes and cultures.
Cargill’s technical service professionals are located in hundreds of cities around the world. They stand ready to provide information and support when you have questions about ingredients, applications, processes and more. Our technical service team is also your direct link to Cargill’s comprehensive R&D and applications capabilities — and to experts from across the company.
Intellectual asset management
Cargill offers a network of intellectual asset managers and intellectual property attorneys to work with you to safeguard the technical ideas, solutions and agreements that are yours exclusively — or that we develop together. Our intent is to help ensure that valuable intellectual assets remain exclusively available to use time and again for creating new solutions and generating additional value.
Scientific and regulatory support
Our scientific and regulatory affairs team is available to help you successfully navigate the regulatory requirements of markets around the world. As part of charting a regulatory roadmap to your product marketing goals, we work with you to assess the gap between scientific research and regulatory requirements, evaluate and substantiate the safety of ingredients and products through sound scientific studies, manage regulatory submissions to successful outcomes and provide support to ensure that products meet the regulatory requirements of their targeted markets.
