Cargill offers a broad range of solutions, required to take plant-based alternatives to the next level, functionally and nutritionally. Our roots of knowhow, competence and reliability and vision for continued innovation through the stimulation of bussing entrepreneurs, mean that we continue to push the boundaries as a plant-based ingredient innovator:
The roots: Our heritage in making plant-based solutions goes back more than 150 years, since the first Cargill grain elevator was opened. We have continued on this journey by entering the food ingredients space, which has included the incorporation of numerous legacy plant-based ingredients suppliers into our broad portfolio.
The shoots: We have solidified our position through the years by taking a greater prominence in label-friendly plant-based solutions, including functional solutions like pectin, and carrageenan, but also indulgent ingredients that are inherently plant-based, such as dark chocolate. This strategy has enabled us to be the market leader in many of the ingredient’s categories in which we operate.
The buds: We have a tradition in innovation and are always pushing the boundaries of what is possible with plant-based solutions. This includes the creation of label-friendly ingredients to meet today’s product development demands, but also the full optimization of side streams from our production process. But we know that great expertise exists outside our walls too – which is why we are investing in plant-based startups and innovators, and enabling them to benefit from our sheer scale.
