Sit Down with Cargill’s Joe Stone

He led billion-dollar acquisitions for Cargill. His work supports the UN’s World Food Programme. He serves on the board of directors for the U.S.-China Business Council. You are invited to sit down in this one-on-one discussion!

While Joe Stone flies under the radar of media, his work is far reaching from policy and international relationships to the world of ag business and supply chain management. Stone joined Cargill’s Board of Directors in 2016 and leads the company’s Agricultural Supply Chain Division, as well as its corporate trading strategy.

Cargill is one of four companies that combined move more than 70% of the world’s grain and oilseeds. And he is at the helm of one of these, helping to steer the ship and navigate the waters ahead. While many are still focused on COVID-19, Stone has his eyes on what’s next.

His experience is deep and his perspective is broad. We are excited to host Joe Stone in our first-ever Soy-Suite interview, led by USSEC’s Jim Sutter, CEO. Here we aim to identify and discuss significant trends and uncover industry developments that impact your business, as well as the future of global food and agriculture industry supply chains. There’s no one better to kick off this series of periodic interviews than Cargill’s Joe Stone.
