Helping our partners thrive
Romania is one of Europe's most significant producers of oilseeds and grains. At Cargill, our role is to bring together farmers and customers in the milling and feed industries, both within Romania and beyond.
We work hard to make our partners' businesses more successful, and offer a range of practical support such as price risk management. Proactive and customer-focused, our role is to help our partners make the best business decisions, while our logistics team ensures that goods are delivered in a safe but timely manner.
Our capabilities and resources
We have particular strengths in rapeseed and sunflower seeds. While we export most of the rapeseed harvested in Romania mainly for use in the European bio-diesel industry, we supply sunflower seeds to meet the predominantly regional demand for sunflower oil.
We have expertise and experience in a range of grains, including barley, corn and wheat.
While some barley is supplied to the human food and industrial sectors, most of the Romanian harvest meets domestic demand for compound animal feed.
Romania is one of the top ten largest corn producers, with three million hectares planted annually. High levels of demand for Romanian corn attract small and large farmers - and we help them sell their products across both domestic and export markets in the European Union, meeting demand from the food, animal feed, and industrial sectors as well as the bio-diesel industry.
Wheat is the most important and widely cultivated grain in Romania, and is used in industry and animal feed. Romanian farmers have a long track record of growing the most appropriate hybrids to produce high quality milling wheat for domestic and export markets.
