Cargill launches new business unit focused on animal, human health



Cargill Inc is launching a new business unit focused on animal and human health products as part of a reorganisation of its animal nutrition business, the company told Reuters on September 25.


Cargill said its animal nutrition and health group will now consist of three units: Cargill Animal Nutrition, combining its existing feed, nutrition and premix businesses; Cargill Aqua Nutrition; and the new Cargill Health Technologies.


The new unit will focus on "specialty health ingredients, building a digestive and immune business for humans and animals," the company said in a statement.


Chuck Warta, currently president of Cargill's animal nutrition and premix business, will lead the new unit.


Adriano Marcon, president and group leader for Cargill's aquaculture business globally, will be in charge of Cargill Animal Nutrition. Pilar Cruz, president of its compound feed business, will head up Cargill Aqua Nutrition.
