WAYZATA, Minnesota , August 30, 2023 (press release) –

Cargill knows agriculture plays an important role in addressing global challenges like climate change and food insecurity, but that is only possible when sustainable solutions are economically viable for the producers who work hard every day to feed the world. That’s why Cargill brings together farmers, industry, academics, NGOs, and policymakers to create a sustainable agricultural sector. Through concrete actions, use of technology and innovation, and meaningful investments Cargill is able to deliver impact at scale globally.

The company received awards and recognition in several of the 2023 BIG Sustainability Awards categories: 

  • Sustainability Leadership Award – Winner for its overall organizational impact 
  • Service of the Year – Winner, specifically recognizing Cargill RegenConnect®
  • Initiative of the Year – Finalist for its work supporting farmer livelihoods

We are honored to receive this recognition from BIG,” said Pilar Cruz, Cargill’s Chief Sustainability Officer. “When it comes to urgent challenges facing people and the planet, Cargill’s connections across the food system give us the opportunity – and responsibility – to deliver meaningful solutions. The problem-solving potential of agriculture is essential to nourishing people, supporting the livelihoods of farmers and food workers, and unlocking a more resilient and sustainable food system for generations to come.”

“We are proud to reward and recognize Cargill for their sustainability efforts,” said Maria Jimenez, Chief Nominations Officer, Business Intelligence Group. “It was clear to our judges that their vision and strategy will continue to deliver results toward a cleaner, more sustainable world. Congratulations!”
