Sustainable Supply Chains

Building trust across our supply chains

We believe the private sector has an important role to play in finding solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges – from addressing climate change, to protecting natural resources and improving food security. We’re working with farmers, government, industry groups, customers and consumers to make the future of food more sustainable.

Consumers are increasingly interested in where their food originates and how it is produced. Cargill is helping our customers provide consumers the clarity and confidence they seek around products and ingredients. Being able to trace food back to its origin or track the environmental and social impacts of a supply chain requires cooperation across a complex global food system. We are embracing the opportunity to build trust in the food system and deliver value for our customers.

Each supply chain is unique, and Cargill leverages its size, expertise and supply chain capabilities in a variety of ways to create a more sustainable, food-secure future.
