North American processor Cargill has unveiled its $70m Wichita-based headquarters.

The 188,000-square-foot building will be home to 800 employees, and be the connection hub for 28,000 staff members across North America and more than three dozen protein production facilities in the US and Canada.

The site also includes: an immersive technology conference room that enables employees to collaborate easier and faster with their colleagues in global locations from Buenos Aires to Geneva to Shanghai; a presentation kitchen to connect customers and visitors to food solutions and inspired culinary innovation; a sensory center that allows Cargill and its customers to conduct product research, focus groups and product testing; dedicated areas to explore sustainability across the protein supply chain, and capacity to accommodate 950 employees.

“We want to help make Wichita the Silicon Valley of protein, bringing together the best minds, innovation and technology in the industry,”​ said Cargill protein president Brian Sikes. “Our customers rely on us to bring insights to the table and anticipate what consumers need and want. This building, along with our existing Cargill Innovation Center, creates a destination for customers to tap into our expertise and experience the future of protein.”
