Cargill expands support of Notre Dame Haiti Program

In addition to Cargill's three-year monetary contribution, a number of current and former Cargill Salt employees will be providing production and scientific expertise.

Jim Reimer, a recently retired vice president of Cargill Salt, is contributing the first year of his retirement to the Haiti Program. Reimer notes that his involvement is simply another chance to give back, in accordance with his own belief in helping the less fortune in the name of Jesus Christ.

In 2010, Cargill supplied 100 tons of salt (equal to about one million three-ounce table-top shakers) from its solar operations in Bonaire, Netherlands Antilles. With Haitians preferring locally produced salt, the focus now is on domestic production, which had the additional benefit of helping the Haitian economy become more self-sustaining.

"While our past in-kind donations of salt have been tremendously helpful to the people of Haiti, improving the quality of life for millions, it makes good sense to help the country invest in itself and its future by using locally produced salt," Ruth Kimmelshue, president of Cargill Salt, said. Cargill became involved in the program several years ago after Haiti Program founder Tom Streit, C.S.C., approached Cargill Salt for assistance in salt fortification.

"Call it serendipity (of course as a priest I want to call it Providence) but this relationship is very special," Fr. Streit said. "This is science in the service of humanity, but it is business in the service of humanity as well. I'm so very grateful for Car
