Cargill, Incorporated Key Developments

Cargill Limited Announces Launch of New Starch Solution

Cargill Limited announced the launch of CPulpTex 12931 modified starch. C*PulpTex 12931 modified starch is an instant starch solution for tomato-based convenience food applications. This coarse, roll-dried, cross-linked starch brings added textural properties by delivering pulpiness, whilst maintaining the taste and visual appeal of soups, sauces and condiments. C*PulpTex 12931 modified starch is a texturizing starch. Texturizing starches are part of Cargill Texturizing Solutions' unique portfolio of texturizers and emulsifiers, which includes a vast range of lecithins, pectins, carrageenans, alginates, biopolymers, locust bean gums and functional systems. This large portfolio, coupled with global R&D and supply chain capabilities, allows Cargill to help customers manage both the product development and supply chain challenges associated with formulating or reformulating products.

Cargill Secures The European Commission Clearance for Acquisition of Archer-Daniels-Midland Company's Chocolate Business

The European Commission has granted conditional clearance for Cargill to acquire Archer Daniels Midland's chocolate business in Europe. Together with the approvals granted earlier by the US Department of Justice, this completes the regulatory approval process for the global deal. After closing of the transaction, three chocolate, compound and liquor production sites in North America - Milwaukee (Wis.), Hazleton (Penn.) and Georgetown (Ontario) and three chocolate and compound production sites in Europe - Liverpool (U.K.), Manage (Belgium) and Mannheim (Germany) and more than 650 employees will transfer to Cargill. And the Ambrosia, Merckens and Schokinag brands will join Cargill's existing portfolio of high quality chocolate brands. Addressing the European Commission's competition concerns, Cargill has agreed to divest ADM's industrial chocolate production facility in Mannheim, Germany. The facility will be kept as a separate entity with its own interim management until an agreement with a prospective buyer has been made. Cargill provides food, agriculture, financial and industrial products and services worldwide.
