Cargill, a multinational company, has opened a new Cargill Business Services center in Costa Rica to provide services to the Americas in the areas of finance and human resources.
Cargill hired 200 people for the new operation.
"Cargill CBS honors Costa Rica to trust the national talent to carry out its new services project,”
President Luis Guillermo Solis said. “We hope that in the coming months the company will give us more good news that benefit more Costa Ricans by providing quality jobs."
Costa Rica was elected for the installation of the shared services center mainly because it is close to the business of the company and its workforce is of very high quality. Cargill has been operating in Costa Rica since 1999 when it acquired the meat processing company Cinta Azul, and tripled its size in 2011 with the acquisition of Pipasa.
"The selection of Costa Rica as one of the locations for the (Cargill Business Services) center shows the strategic importance of the country for Cargill, which celebrates its 150th anniversary worldwide," Kathy Fortmann, president of Cargill Business Services, said.
Today, with three business units -- Cargill Animal Nutrition, Cargill Meats Central America and Cargill Business Services -- their locations employ more than 4,500 people in the country.
