Cargill disagrees with EEOC finding on Fort Morgan

August 09, 2017

We have a longstanding commitment to inclusion and diversity and respect for religious freedom and expression. We do what is required by law and go further to provide additional religious accommodation in our U.S. locations. We are disappointed by, and disagree with, how the EEOC interprets what occurred at Fort Morgan in 2015. The allegations made by CAIR are false. Cargill has provided religious accommodation to Fort Morgan employees for many years and established designated reflection areas there in 2009. Our policy has not changed and, based upon the facts, we are confident in our position. Cargill employees at Fort Morgan come from many countries, and everyone working at the plant has access to religious accommodation under our policy.
