To reprioritize in a rapidly evolving market, Cargill has reorganized its animal nutrition business and named Pilar Cruz as president and group leader for the organization’s aqua nutrition business. Cruz’s background spans 17 years in leadership roles with Cargill and includes running the company’s strategy and business development group, leading teams in Cargill’s animal nutrition and animal protein businesses, and managing teams in Latin American, Europe, Canada and the United States. 

“The feed industry is well-positioned to drive change and growth in the aquaculture industry and I’m excited to lead a team with the expertise and resources to support the increasing demand for healthy, sustainable seafood. We will continue to focus our strategy on providing customers with solutions to help them advance animal health and well-being, performance and sustainability,” said Cruz.

The company provides aquafeed to markets across the globe. In addition to the aqua nutrition business, Cargill's animal nutrition and health group will also now consist of an animal nutrition division – combining its existing feed, nutrition and pre-mix businesses – and a new business focused health technologies.

Cargill is making a significant investment to build a leading digestive and immune health business for both animal and human application, which emphasizes the growing importance of health among both farmers and consumers and demonstrates the company’s commitment to growing this business into a leading player in the industry.

By applying science, technology and research, Cargill Health Technologies will develop new categories of products that strengthen the immune system, drive better overall health and unlock the full potential of the bodies we’re feeding – both animal and human. The company has started to apply solutions from its Health Technologies business to aqua applications.
