We are very proud to announce that our commitment to sustainability has been honoured with the 2010 US Chamber Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) International Community Service Award.  Cargill was one of five finalists for this prestigious award, which was given in acknowledgment  of our  work to improve livelihoods for cocoa farmers and their families in Africa, Asia and South America.

“We’re privileged to have our efforts to raise living standards and strengthen communities recognized by the U.S. Chamber,” said Greg Page, Cargill’s chairman and CEO, who accepted the award November 30 in Washington, D.C.
