Cargill has named Helene Ziv-Douki as president of Cargill’s aqua nutrition business, effective immediately.
She joined Cargill in 2003, and takes over from Pilar Cruz in the fish feed division.
Cruz has recently been promoted to chief sustainability officer at Cargill, the company's first such officer.
“Helene’s success during her more than 20-year career reflects her approach as a builder of multicultural, diverse teams and talent, her customer focus, and her passion for excellence and innovation,” said Ruth Kimmelshue, global lead for Cargill’s animal nutrition and health enterprise. “She brings a passion for sustainability and the aqua and seafood industry, with unique capabilities and perspectives that will help our aqua nutrition team advance its business objectives and deliver for our customers.”
Ziv-Douki first joined the animal nutrition and health team in 2017 as the risk management and sourcing director for the company’s aqua nutrition business.
It was in this role that Helene had the opportunity to interact with aqua nutrition teams around the world, gain a deep understanding of the business, and provide innovative solutions to Cargill’s aqua nutrition customers, including creating a market-leading partnership with the insect industry, said the company.
