Cargill invests in local communities through economic development, partnerships and giving combined with the volunteer efforts of our employees. Cargill provides corporate support to select national and global nonprofit and nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that serve communities in which we have a business presence. We support partners working within our focus areas of food security, nutrition, and sustainability. And, our businesses and facilities sponsor employee-led groups, called Cargill Cares Councils, which support civic and non-profit organizations in their local communities.
Cargill Cares Councils seek to recognize issues important to our communities; build effective relationships with community leaders; and work to help improve living standards and promote vibrant, stable communities.
In Chile, Cargill has been developing activities in the Town of Coronel, in the Biobío Region and also in the area of Calbuco and Colaco, places where our operations are concentrated.
We have a Council, and Community Referents within our Organization that are responsible for promoting and executing actions that help our communities prosper.
