Our People

Inspired by a common mission, shared values, and the difference we can make by working together.

Our people are at the core of all that we do. What started out as three friends around a kitchen table has now grown to an organization of more than 100 employees dedicated to achieving our mission and honoring the intent of our founder, Margaret Cargill.
