Cargill Romania has officially opened a grain silo in Drobeta Turnu Severin with a capacity of 44,000 tons. The silo had been previously bought and it underwent a modernizing process.
The new facility gives Cargill Romania an additional 8 percent silo capacity and it allows it to buy cerals from the Mehedinti and other neighboring counties. Martin Schuldt, general manager of Cargill Romania, said that the new facility is an important step for the company to further develop its relations with local farmers.
Cargill is an international producer and supplier of food products, agriculture related services and financial services. The company started operations in Romania in 1996 and it now has 750 employees in 22 locations countrywide. It locally runs operations related to cereals, oilseeds, vegetable oil and animal feed.
