Campollo will expand Cargill’s protein business in Latin America, which includes businesses in Colombia, Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua.

“We are committed to this region and I´m thrilled to expand our operations in Colombia,” says Xavier Vargas, president of Cargill Protein Latin America. “Our markets and communities will benefit as we bring our teams together.

Cargill will welcome Campollo’s more than 2,500 employees, which will bring the number of total Cargill employees in Colombia to more than 7,500. Cargill Global Poultry has more than 35,000 employees across 14 countries.
