Cargill to Revamp Food Ingredients Supply Chain in NA

Moving to streamline its supply chain, improve customer experiences, and establish a platform for growth, American agribusiness Cargill recently named six new food ingredients and applications distribution partners for North America.

“In today’s rapidly changing marketplace, our customers need industry-leading distributor partners who can augment our in-house expertise with broad product portfolios for one-stop convenience, regulatory support, flexible lead times, and minimum order quantities,” Pat Rogers, commercial leader within Cargill’s North American food ingredients business, said in a press release. “We’re confident these partners can deliver on those expectations, bringing added value to our customers.”

The distribution partners include Gillco Ingredients, Univar Inc., International Food Products Corporation, Batory Foods, St. Charles Trading Inc., and Pearson Sales Company. 

Gillco will distribute Cargill products in the U.S., focusing on organic, label-friendly, and specialty product offerings. Cargill’s starches, specialty sweeteners, texturizers, cocoa, chocolate, and edible vegetable oils and fats will be distributed in the U.S. and Canada by Univar. International Food Products will distribute Cargill’s products for the dairy segment. Pearson Sales Company, St. Charles Trading, and Batory Foods will handle legacy Cargill ingredients in the U.S., continuing an existing arrangement. 

“These six partners will be powerful contributors to our business, bringing improvements to our North American supply chain, e-commerce, technical service expertise, and other components critical to our customers’ success,” said Rogers in a statement. “By consolidating our regional distribution channels, our customers will be able to benefit from the unique strengths these distributors bring to the table.”

Cargill said other distributors will support its food service, retail, and confectionery chocolate segments and other channels.
