Human Health & Nutrition
Providing safe, nutritious, affordable protein to a growing world
Nourishing people everywhere
Our feed goes to raise animals that provide nutritious protein for the plates of 1 billion people every day. Global demand for protein will only grow in the years ahead. Making sure our contribution to nourishing the world is safe for the animals and ultimately the people who will consume it is our highest priority. Our work to build transparency in the food system also gives consumers confidence in the products they choose.
Sustainable business models
Cargill’s acquisition of EWOS is helping expand sustainable salmon aquaculture, a vital source of protein and other nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids that improve human health and nutrition. One out of three salmon worldwide is raised on EWOS feed.
We also are leaders in feed and food safety. Three of our animal feed plants in China were the first in the world to receive FSSC22000 Animal Food and Feed certification. This is a rigorous food safety standard based on internationally recognized standards.
Recently, our plant in Pyeongtaek, Korea, was commended for its high level of feed safety and biosecurity by the country’s agricultural ministry during an outbreak of food-and-mouth disease in the country. The facility’s four-step sanitation system helped educate farmers, industry partners and employees on steps to limit the spread of the disease.
