Cargill will offer plant-based option

Plant-based option will be available in early April, expanding company's approach to protein.

Cargill's new private label plant-based patties and ground products will hit retailers and restaurants in early April.

The new offerings are part of Cargill’s inclusive approach to the future of protein – advancing both animal and alternative protein products to meet the expected 70% growth in global demand for protein over the next 30 years.

The plant-based protein products, which were developed through culinary insight, extensive consumer research and innovation, are made in Cargill facilities, delivering the taste and consistency consumers want.

“We’ve combined our deep knowledge of plant proteins with our expertise in R&D, product development and production to deliver products consumers will love,” said Elizabeth Gutschenritter, managing director of Cargill’s alternative protein team

Brian Sikes, leader of Cargill’s global protein and salt business, notes customers are looking to the company for solutions.

“Cargill’s strategy for both food and feed is based on helping customers thrive in a world where demand for protein is rising,” said Sikes.

Cargill has invested $7 billion globally in animal protein in the last five years while making strategic investments in the alternative protein space.

“We need to keep all protein options on the table,” said Sikes. “Whether you are eating alternative or animal protein, Cargill will be at the center of the plate.”
