    Nourishing those who nourish the world

    Agriculture is powered by people – farmers, ranchers, producers, factory and food services workers and many others – each one critical to supporting a safe, reliable and resilient food system. Agriculture is how we nourish the world.

     

    At Cargill, it’s our responsibility to nourish those who nourish us all. To achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, food systems must be more sustainable, resilient, and equitable, and must provide access to an array of culturally relevant, safe, affordable, and nutritious food. The long-term stability of the global food system is dependent on millions of farmers, ranchers, producers, and food service workers. Together with our partners, we work to support the people who contribute to our food system. 

    Nourishing those who nourish the world -imageinside01The work starts at the community level.

    Our work starts at the community level, where millions of farmers, ranchers, and producers of all sizes grow the crops and livestock the world needs. We partner with them to ensure they have access to the right tools, information, and training to support successful farming businesses. We design and implement partnerships that help strengthen communities to enable long-term solutions to food and nutrition security and drive economic, environmental, and social resilience. And we provide access to food across our operating and sourcing communities when needed.

    Our ability to feed the world depends on successful farmers at every level of production – from commercial-scale farming to smallholders. Each year, we work directly with millions of farmers to help them raise food more sustainably, access more markets, diversify their incomes, and receive the tools, information and training they need.

    Cargill also collaborates with partners such as the World Wildlife Fund, TechnoServe and The Nature Conservancy to bring in technical expertise and resources to further strengthen good agricultural practices and support successful farming enterprises.
