Cargill to open new hub in Atlanta, creating 400 new jobs

Cargill has unveiled plans to establish a new office hub in Atlanta, Georgia, US, which will create around 400 new jobs.


The company’s Digital, Technology and Data business will be the primary occupant of the new hub.


Brian Sikes, Cargill’s board chair and CEO, said: “With a new office hub in Atlanta, Cargill will be able to harness the immense potential of digital technology to drive our business forward”.


Jennifer Hartsock, chief information and digital officer at Cargill, commented: “Atlanta's rich pool of technical talent provides unparalleled access to the expertise needed to drive our digital transformation”.


Hartsock said that employees working at the facility will create digital solutions that power the global food supply chain, harness analytics and AI to open new markets and drive technical innovation to make the food system more sustainable and accessible.


Governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, added: “Innovative job creators like this help continue the upward momentum of key industries like tech and agriculture, our number one industry”.


Georgia’s food processing sector contributes more than $11 billion each year to the US’s $661 billion GDP, making it a top 10 US state for food processing.


Cargill’s new Atlanta hub is slated to open in Q3 2024.
