Tier 2: We maximize and multiply diversity within our supply chain through our Tier 2 program. A Tier 2 supplier is the company that provides Cargill’s Tier 1 (Prime) supplier with products or services that will be provided to the end user. The Tier 2 company’s service or product does not have to be sold directly to Cargill for the spend to be counted in Cargill’s Tier 2 program.
