Cargill gives back to communities by contributing 2 percent of its global consolidated pre-tax earnings (based on a three-year trailing average). Cargill donated $50.2 million in 57 countries during its 2016 fiscal year. We promote the social well-being of the communities we serve through long-term solutions to reduce hunger, improve education and protect the environment. For more information click here.
