Whitney MacMillan, who led Cargill Inc. for 20 years and was the last member of the founding family to run the agricultural giant, died Wednesday in Vero Beach, FL, of natural causes.

He was 90.

According to the Star Tribune, MacMillan spent 44 years working for the company started in 1865 by his great-grandfather, W.W. Cargill.

A true believer in the idea of moving food from places of abundance to places of scarcity, MacMillan played an instrumental role turning Cargill into a global powerhouse.
