Cargill has chosen Cumberland County, North Carolina, for a significant expansion of its plant by investing $25 million to improve production capacity.

A six-year performance-based incentive grant of $600,000 was approved by the Cumberland County Board of Commissioners.

The project, set to begin before the end of 2021.

Cargill is a global leader in oilseed processing. These investments are part of the organization’s overall growth strategy in the U.S. and create an opportunity to better serve customers on both ends of the supply chain. All facilities will continue to operate while construction and expansion are underway.

Cargill has operated its facility on River Road outside Fayetteville since 1970. It evaluated competing locations for its investment and ultimately chose Cumberland County for the project which will invest $5 million in real estate improvements and $20 million in new personal property.

“Our plant in Cumberland County is an important link in the supply chain for North Carolina farmers and livestock producers, and these investments will help us serve customers more efficiently,” says Don Camden, vice president, Cargill Agricultural Supply Chain North America.

Cargill is committed to nourishing the world in a safe, responsible, sustainable way. We are part of the community and are proud to provide significant support for a number of organizations in the area funding nutrition and education programming projects, as well as COVID-19 relief.”
