Position Objective:

The Research & Development (R&D) function at Cargill will provide students with a career interest and a food related academic background, the opportunity to apply knowledge gained in the classroom to a business environment. The co-op program is designed to provide students with the opportunity to learn and work with Cargill business units/function to provide solutions to customers. Co-ops will typically be ‘applications’ oriented, i.e. applying lab or pilot work on customer finished food systems. Such applications work is typically done to meet a customer need and to support development of a new Cargill ingredient or product.
