Cargill has announced plans to build a soybean processing facility in Pemiscot County, Missouri, to meet growing global and domestic demand for oilseeds.
The new facility will have an annual production capacity of 62 million bushels of soybeans and will create around 45 full-time jobs.
Tim Coppage, regional commercial lead at Cargill agricultural supply chain North America, commented: “Cargill’s new facility, with its location on the Mississippi river, will operate year-round and provide farmers with the opportunity to take advantage of increased domestic demand versus relying solely on seasonal exports. Access to both river and rail will provide more flexibility and market access for farmers.”
Cargill expects the facility to begin operations in 2026.
