Mr. Hans Kabat, President of Cargill Protein Southeast Asia, said "The main mission of the organisation is engaging in the agricultural food business which is in line with the lifestyle of consumers under the corporate commitment "Helping The World thrive". We value the innovation of management of foods and agriculture throughout the whole supply chain to achieve sustainable fertility, environmental preservation, climate and water resources, as well as strengthen communities in economy, education, nutrition, housing, culture and occupations. Therefore, Cargill's Pracharat Housing Project for low income earners, is another project that really meets the needs of people in a community.
