How to Set Up Cargill in Your System
ARIBA NOTE: Some of the specific content in this section may not applicable for Cargill ARIBA Network (AN) Transactions. Please refer to the Understanding Ariba section of Supplier Central for information on AN transactions.
Suppliers should be making sure they have Cargill’s customer accounts set up correctly in their system(s).
Cargill uses “Attn Line” numbers to route invoices to the correct approvers within Cargill. We therefore recommend that you set up a customer record for each Cargill Attn Line number that you receive purchase orders from or transact with. (Click here to access a complete list of Cargill locations and corresponding Attn Line numbers and “bill to” legal entity business name information.) It is critical that your invoices include the correct Attn Line number and "bill to" business name to be routed properly for on-time payment.
In fact, the most common error we see is suppliers using “Finance Shared Services” as the “sold to” entity on invoices. This is not a legitimate Cargill Business name and should not be used. Suppliers must use the full, accurate, legal entity business name in their systems and on their invoices.
Examples of correct Cargill business names include:
- Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate
- Cargill Global Edible Oil Solutions a division of Cargill, Incorporated
- Cargill Salt a division of Cargill, Incorporated
- Cargill Starches & Sweeteners a division of Cargill, Incorporated
- Cargill Starches & Sweeteners a division of Cargill Limited

If you are a supplier that is not utilizing an automated ordering method (such as EDI), it is important that your order entry teams select the correct “bill to” account for each individual transaction with Cargill so your system generates a separate invoices with the matching Attn Line.
Aligning your system with Cargill’s “bill to” and “Attn Line” information ensures faster processing of payment.
