Cargill invests US$50 million to expand Thai poultry processing business
Cargill is investing US$50 million to expand its poultry processing operations in Thailand.
The investment will create 1,400 jobs, adding to the more than 13,500 employees that we currently employ across 14 locations in the country.
Cargill has been steadily growing its foothold in the protein business in Asia due to growing customer demand and consumer appetite for poultry products. In May, it formed a joint venture with Jollibee Foods Corporation to establish a poultry processing facility in the Philippines, creating 1,000 jobs in the process.
More recently in September, it started a joint venture with leading agri-food business Japfa to produce and supply fully-cooked poultry products in Indonesia.
