Across its five businesses, Cargill offers a plethora of diversified operations and products, including grain, cotton, sugar, petroleum, and financial trading; food processing; futures brokering; health and pharmaceutical products; animal feed and crop protection; and industrial products such as biofuels, oils and lubricants, starches, salt, and fertilizer for crop and livestock farmers.

Mergers and Acquisitions
