Tuesday, December 4th, 2018

Cargill has scooped up one of Colombia’s leading producers of chicken and protein products in its quest to expand the scope of its poultry operations. This week, Cargill announced it has acquired CAMPOLLO, a company that has more than 20 years of experience in the market, broadening its protein business in Latin America, which also includes businesses in Costa Rica, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua.

Jorge Ivan Duque, General Manager, Pollos Bucanero“As a Colombian, I’m proud we are strengthening the way we serve our customers and helping even more communities prosper. CAMPOLLO reaches millions of customers across the country. The acquisition complements and enhances our product portfolio and expands our current reach to more of the Colombian market. I’m confident this will be a smooth integration that will benefit our employees, customers, consumers, and communities,” said General Manager of Pollos Bucanero—a company that Cargill acquired in June of 2017—Jorge Ivan Duque.
