“God did not bestow all products upon all parts of the earth, but distributed gifts over different regions to the end that we might cultivate a social relationship, because one would need the help of another. And so God called commerce into being, that all might have the common enjoyment of the fruits of the earth, no matter where produced”Libanius, a 4th century philosopher

Cargill Food Safety Policy

Cargill is committed to providing safe food and animal feed products and services. We will use only those product development, procurement, supply chain, transportation, storage, production, manufacturing, and distribution systems and suppliers that ensure the safety and regulatory compliance of our products. Every Cargill Business Unit, Function, and employee has a responsibility to ensure the production of safe products that comply with the applicable laws, regulations and Corporate Food Safety and Regulatory Affairs requirements. Cargill management will provide the resources and support necessary to enable our employees to fulfill this responsibility.

supplier qualification management program
Supplier Qualification/Management Program
  • Risk assessment determines level of oversight
  • May manage with a questionnaire, 3rd party audit and/or Cargill audit
  • Currently managed by Business Unit programs; moving to a Cargill-wide program
  • Must have line of sight back to origin
  • We must be comfortable with intent to comply and will work to build a solid, trusting relationship
external manufacturers
External Manufacturers
  • Non-Cargill facilities that produce Cargill finished products
  • Must meet Cargill food safety & quality requirements
  • Must be audited with CFSRA Audit
  • We must be comfortable with intent to comply and will work to build a solid, trusting relationship
food safety audits
Food Safety Audits
  • Most business units (BUs) have their own weekly, monthly or quarterly audit
  • All plants audited annually using the CFSRA Audit which is based on CODEX
  • Plants receive multiple 3rd party audits, customer audits and/or customer visits
  • Have strategy to move to FSSC 22000 (GFSI benchmarked) across all of Cargill
food safety index fsi objective
Food Safety Index (FSI) Objective
  • To develop a formula that can be used to demonstrate the value and effectiveness of our food safety programs
  • Provide a gap analysis tool to help the businesses progress in food safety
  • Major effort began in 2006
findings givens
Findings/Givens
  • The Food Safety Index must be Global not North American Centric
  • Must not be a punitive system
  • Should be a “Living Index” that becomes part of Cargill’s “DNA” and leads to continuous improvement and a food safety culture
  • Cargill’s businesses range from those that have a high Food Safety risk to those with a low risk
  • Should use indexes that already work at Cargill as models or for guidance [e.g., Environmental Health and Safety (EHS), Service Quality Index (SQI)]
balancing act
Balancing Act
  • Keep it simple
    • Minimal inputs needed
    • Inputs are already being tracked
    • End result is very easy to interpret
  • Keep it fair
    • Weighting/balancing risks, number of customers, complexity of process, etc. is necessary to compare apples-to-apples
    • May need to invent new tracking systems
    • Should be risk-based – adds huge complexity
implementation of the fsi
Implementation of the FSI
  • FY 06/07 – did a trial run, collected the data from the BU’s, but did not report to upper management
  • FY 07/08 – made improvements to the FSI, shared single BU results with the BU leadership, shared combined index with Platform Leaders, Function Leaders and the CLT
  • FY 08/09 – continued to improve the FSI, add additional areas of focus (Feed Ingredient Safety) as determined during the Food Safety Summit and other discussions
  • Next year – requirement for written corrective actions and timeline for all “reds”
