To change the grievance, Mighty Earth contacted Cargill before the report was released. According to one, the company responded to the request “Spiegel” report First of all, cooperative and understanding: Cargill boss David MacLennan asked for time to think, during which he could think about the recommendations of the report and encourage them to be implemented.-
However, this “reflection period” was five months long, and the circumstances that Mighty Earth criticized did not change. It is almost impossible for consumers to do without Cargill products. This is also due to the fact that the name of the company is often not to be found on products to which Cargill has contributed something.
Therefore, Mighty Earth hopes for all the companies that buy goods from the agricultural company. If Aldi, Nestlé, McDonald’s and many others are serious about sustainability, the environmental organization will ask them to stop working with Cargill.
