Cargill Plans to Keep Several Operations in Wichita

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Agribusiness giant Cargill says it is keeping several of its operations in Wichita, Kansas, and is searching for a new facility to house them. Cargill corporate vice president Brian Sikes made the announcement Tuesday during a news conference with Kansas Governor Sam Brownback and other officials. The company is headquartered just outside of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Wichita is home to its beef business and its turkey and cooked meat business, which includes deli meats. Its value-added protein services such as its North American egg business and its food distribution also are located in Wichita. The company had been considering moving the operations to another location, citing workflow issues with having people in multiple buildings. Most of the 900 employees that work in its Wichita-based operations are housed in a 10-story building.
