WAYZATA, Minnesota , March 26, 2024 (press release) –

According to Fortune, “Innovation can spark in a multitude of ways: R&D teams who invent new products; efficient processes that pad a company’s bottom line; inspiring leaders who foster brainstorming and collaboration that lead to original creations. And innovation isn’t just a nice-to-have—nearly every company on this list posted revenue growth in the last three years.”

Cargill is leading transformations at a global scale, working with academics, startups, customers and suppliers to address many of the world’s most pressing needs. From feeding a growing population with nutritious options to protecting the planet – the company’s 2,500 R&D experts along with teams around the world are delivering innovations with impact. 

“Innovation is the foundation for a better future. We’re reimagining what is possible for food, agriculture and beyond,” said Florian Schattenmann, Cargill’s chief technology officer and vice president of Innovation and Research & Development. 

“We are thrilled to receive this recognition. When you have great talent united by a big purpose to nourish the world, it’s amazing the impact you can make along the way. This award is one reflection of the great work our teams do every day to deliver lasting change for our customers, communities and people around the world.” 

This prestigious award is presented by Fortune and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. The awards list was announced on March 26, 2024, and can be viewed on the Fortune website.
