Cargill Protein Headquarters



Growth & Innovation

Underscoring a commitment to growth, innovation and new business capabilities, Cargill's North American protein business constructed a new 188,000-squarefoot headquarters facility in downtown Wichita, Kansas. The four-story office building located at 825 East Douglas Avenue will be home to more than 750 employees with space for growth of up to 950 team members. With close proximity to the Cargill Innovation Center at 300 West 1st Street North, Cargill Protein’s headquarters campus will promote collaboration as the team develops customer-first solutions for our valued partners.

Employee Engagement

With engagement and talent recruitment in mind, the office space features numerous employee collaboration spaces, including a café, conference center, wellness rooms, state-of-the-art sensory center and customer presentation kitchen. Located in the heart of Wichita's Old Town district, the office is within steps of local businesses, including options for dining, shopping and entertainment.

“We are a customer-focused, growth-oriented, talent-driven business operating in a highly competitive sector. We embarked on a mission to identify the optimal location where our Wichita-based employees would have the best opportunity to thrive.”

- Brian Sikes, Cargill corporate vice president for the company’s protein group

“Wichita is thrilled with Cargill’s decision to stay and expand their footprint here. After methodically analyzing a good number of cities all across the central region of America, they determined that Wichita is the best option for their business and its future growth goals. We look forward to working together to help Cargill as it continues to grow and adapt to the changing needs of today’s workforce.”

- Wichita Mayor Jeff Longwell

Customer Collaboration

Cargill’s new Wichita-based work environment not only promotes employee connections, but is also designed with our valued customers in mind.

The new headquarters office building features technology-rich collaboration and development spaces where employees can create innovative offerings and solutions. With industry-leading innovation at the heart of our business strategy, the Cargill Protein headquarters campus promotes a collaborative and inventive work environment that will drive growth for both Cargill and our customers.
