Food and beverage brands work in an increasingly complicated, ever-changing environment. Brands on Fieldcraft can now benefit from the ingredients, resources and expertise offered by Cargill for creating successful food and beverage products.
Fieldcraft, the ingredient marketplace and digital supply chain for agriculture, has grown to over 4000 producers from family farms to robotic growing operations, and from emerging brands to global manufacturers. Fieldcraft helps growers and manufacturers attract new business effortlessly and improves customer experience, simplifying an otherwise manual and cumbersome process from search to sale. Brands benefit with increased selection and market transparency, reducing the time and investment required to innovate while improving brand narrative.
For over 157 years, Cargill has leveraged its expertise in processing agricultural commodities into high-quality ingredients for consumers around the world. Cargill currently offers Fieldcraft buyers high intensity sweeteners derived from Stevia. In the early years, stevia sweeteners were derived from low purity steviol glycosides (the sweet tasting components from the stevia leaf), and consequently did not offer a great taste experience. Cargill has been a frontrunner in bringing great-tasting stevia solutions to market.
Growers also benefit with new opportunities to grow and promote their operation. On Fieldcraft, growers have access to over 70 specialty production programs that help them diversify their fields and markets while capturing more margin per acre. Cargill’s RegenConnect™, for instance, offers growers a simple, flexible and transparent way to access the carbon marketplace and earn payments through the adoption of regenerative agriculture practices.
