Data Asset Solutions
Our global knowledge, working for you
It’s a noisy world out there. You need someone who can pierce through the confusion and identify new signals. As one of the largest participants in global supply chains for food, agriculture and metals, our alternative datasets and analytics can help you create insights to answer your most pressing questions and propel your business forward.
Our data advantage
As a company doing business with hundreds of thousands of farmers and customers in more than 125 countries, we have an immense number of touchpoints with the world. Perhaps more than anyone else in food, agriculture, transportation and metals. These touchpoints add up to alternative datasets – unique from traditional, publicly available datasets – that represent a strong source of value for our clients.
We have harnessed the power of that data across Cargill, with more than 100 data scientists and analysts embedded within our operations and trading teams all around the globe. Having seen what our alternative datasets can show us about supply chains, consumer demand and market behavior, we have changed how we run our businesses. Now, we are putting that advantage to work for our clients, too.
We have been generating revenue from our data since 2017, making us one of the first companies in our sectors to do so. With that proven track record, we are now working with select corporate clients to help them make the most of their data, as well. We balance stringent data privacy controls with open innovation to create value together through market analysis, proprietary datasets and collaborative perspectives. It all adds up to an unmatched network of data solutions that give our clients a distinctive and unrivaled view of the world.
Custom-built solutions for your needs
We use our alternative data assets and in-house expertise to curate products for each client based on the questions they are trying to answer.
The solutions we build are designed just for you, backed by our broad reach and deep expertise.
How we work with you
Each of our clients’ needs are distinct. We build a bespoke set of solutions that give you unique visibility and truly create value for your business. To do this, we start with a flexible trial approach and iterate quickly to find the best pathway forward.
Our process includes strict protocols around data privacy, security and compliance. It’s built on a desire to protect all our clients and our value of doing the right thing. Because we know that trust is the one thing that is priceless. As early Cargill leader John MacMillan said,
“Our word is our bond.”
We bring forward-thinking companies together to connect with data opportunities for their businesses.
The clients who make use of our data and analytics products represent a number of sectors, including finance, food and agriculture, insurance, life sciences, sustainability services, and more. We help them access alternative data from within Cargill, across our global supply chains and from our corporate clients who have joined us to monetize their own data. This creates lines of sight our data clients can’t get anywhere else.
These leading corporations have joined with us to develop alternative data products from their own data assets and make them available with ours, to give our data clients an even more comprehensive view of the world. Corporate clients include large companies with significant datasets in agriculture, food, transportation, metals and more.
When it comes to digital transformations, we believe that data monetization is a key component to realizing the full value of the investment. Working with Cargill gives these corporate clients new pathways to create revenue streams from their data, while also potentially providing them with our own market views and projections. Additionally, we develop innovative business models with these companies to exchange data and analytics back and forth, creating bigger opportunities and deeper visibility for both of us.
