Cargill has reached an agreement to acquire Konspol, one of Polandís leading value-added food companies, providing an array of products in the chilled convenience, frozen and cold cut categories. This acquisition marks the introduction of Cargillís global protein business into the Polish market and strengthens the companyís global poultry footprint, expanding operations to 14 countries.

Under the agreement, which is subject to regulatory approvals, Cargill will purchase the Polish assets of Konspolís food and fresh chicken business.
