About Cargill in Thailand

Our activities in Thailand started in 1968 with the opening of a trading office in Bangkok. Over the years we continued to invest in Thailand to grow our business. Today our operations comprise the origination, sourcing, processing, handling, distribution and marketing of a wide range of products including agricultural commodities, animal feed, cooked poultry, food, as well as food and beverage ingredients. We have 11 facility locations throughout Thailand and employ over 14,000 people.

Key Awards and Achievements

Thailand’s economy is based heavily on exports. We are proud to contribute to Thailand’s economic growth through the export of local agricultural commodities and food products. Cargill is one of Thailand’s largest exporters of cooked poultry chicken products.

Cargill is also the largest buyer of Thai sugar that is destined for export markets. In 2009 and 2010, Cargill was awarded the Thai government’s prestigious “Thailand’s Best Friends” award, in recognition of Cargill’s contribution to Thailand’s sugar export sector.
