To protect our lands tomorrow, we must invest in their health and resiliency today
Our commitment to sustaining our most important natural resources begins with the stewards of our earth – farmers.
Farmers are the key to protecting our lands for future generations. Without their partnership, we can’t effectively address the challenges we currently face. We provide farmers with training programs and innovative new processes and products to drive changes in our supply chains. We also work with key stakeholders like customers, industry groups, NGOs and governments to help scale our efforts around the world.
There is no single solution to address the challenge. That’s why our approach includes initiatives that protect the land, invest in regenerative land practices, restore previously converted land and continue to innovate with programs and solutions that can drive long-term change.
Cargill is working with partners, customers and other stakeholders across the supply chain to implement soil health practices and advance regenerative agriculture to the benefit of farmers, ranchers, customers and to create a more resilient, sustainable food system.
Cargill is committed to protecting forests and ensuring deforestation-free supply chains.
