About Cargill in Thailand

 


 

Our operations in Thailand started in 1968 with the opening of a trading office in Bangkok. Over the past 50 years we continued to invest in the country and grow with the Thai economy and community. We have 14 facilities across the country and employ nearly 15,000 people.

Our businesses in Thailand include grain and oilseed supply chain, animal nutrition, cooked poultry products, fruit juice & pulp sourcing and texturizing solutions. Cargill is one of the largest exporters of cooked chicken products in Thailand.

As a part of our continued commitment to the local community, we have invested in efforts to equip more than 1,500 farmers with agricultural technical knowledge and training. We also work with local partners such as Save the Children Thailand to create nutrition initiatives for school-aged children and have been providing clean drinking water stations for schools, continually supporting schools around the company’s facilities and building homes for rural residents.
