Trade connects our economies and feeds our communities

All those connected to Cargill—from employees to customers to consumers—benefit from an open, honest and fair trade system. Trade helps feed the world, opening access to a dependable, affordable and nutritious supply of food. It is also a catalyst for lifting people out of poverty. However, trade is often inaccurately portrayed, misunderstood and criticized.

FedByTrade® is designed to help our 155,000 employees around the globe, and others in the Cargill community, understand why trade matters. It is critical that all of us speak up for trade, to share its real-world, positive effects and illustrate trade’s importance to our jobs, families and communities.

Throughout the course of our 152-year history, Cargill has been a steadfast champion for the issues that matter to our community – a tradition that continues today. We hope you will explore this site, share what you learn with your family and friends and sign up to be an ambassador for trade.
