Food Security

Rural development child returns to schoolFood security exists when people have access to safe, nutritious and affordable food that provides the foundation for an active and healthy life. Cargill businesses contribute to food security by providing consumers with nutritious food that helps improve diets. Each year, we work with millions of farmers to help them raise more food more sustainably, reach more markets, receive fair pricing and improve their standards of living. We also collaborate with partners in the public and private sectors to find long-term solutions to hunger and ensure all people have access to safe, nutritious and affordable food. Over the last five years, Cargill has contributed more than $55 million to reduce hunger and improve nutrition around the world through partnerships with a diverse group of global, national and local organizations.

  • We are committed to helping feed the world’s growing population while at the same time protecting the planet – supporting Cargill’s vision to be the global leader in nourishing people.  
  • We help farmers increase agricultural productivity and incomes while ensuring responsible land use. We develop more efficient methods of moving food from areas of surplus to areas of deficit.  
  • We expand access to food, improve nutrition and pursue partnerships to end hunger in collaboration with the public, private and nonprofit sectors around the world.  
  • We advocate for policies that promote trust-based open trade, efficient local markets, safety nets for producers and consumers, and removal of obstacles to agricultural investment.
