Read the public statement issued by the Argentinian NCP concluding the specific instance - 31 July 2007

In September 2006, the NCP received a request for review from the Argentine Miller's labour union (Unión Obrera Molinera Argentina) alleging that the the multinational Cargill S.A. had breached the general policies, disclosure and employment and industrial relations provisions of the Guidelines.

Both parties reached a solution and the agreement was formalised as noted in the final statement issued by the NCP concluding the specific instance.
