In an effort to improve capacity and supply chain efficiency, as well as consolidate its regional operations, Cargill Protein is combining its San Antonio and Oklahoma City operations into a single hub in Dallas-Fort Worth.
The Minneapolis-based company did not disclose where the facility will be located, but said it will be operated by a contractor and begin serving customers in fall 2018.
Cargill also has multiple meat processing facilities in DFW.
“The DFW area was the logical choice for Cargill to centralize our regional warehousing operation as it has an excellent warehouse, distribution and logistics infrastructure and major highways to all of our key markets in the region,” Rick Johnson, Cargill’s food distribution general manager, said in a prepared statement. “It allows Cargill to scale our growth by providing customers greater capacity, more product variety and more efficient distribution.”
