Cargill was formed in 1996 when a group of cooperatives decided to join together and purchase an existing pet food Company. Today we are a company owned by the leading regional cooperatives Growmark, Land O Lakes, Southern States and Tennessee Farmers. We market our primary products under the brand names of PRO-PET Dog and Cat Foods, BIG RED Dog Foods, and LI'L Red Cat Foods in partnership with over 3,000 retail locations located throughout most of the United States. Cargill also manufactures private label pet foods that are marketed under a variety of selected company brand names located throughout the United States.
Our Chamber has approximately 530 members that invest their resources, employee volunteerism and confidence in the Owatonna Area Chamber of Commerce & Tourism and the business community.
