Cargill Meat Solutions' history can be traced to 1936, when Excel Packing Company was formed in Chicago. In 1941, the business moved to Wichita. In 1970, Excel was incorporated as Kansas Beef Industries. In 1974, Kansas Beef Industries merged with Missouri Beef Packers and the company was renamed MBPXL, reflecting the merged entities -- MBP for Missouri Beef Packers and XL for Kansas Beef Industries' original name, Excel. Cargill acquired MBPXL in 1979, and the company's name was changed to Excel in 1982.[2] In 1983, Excel purchased Spencer Beef from Land O'Lakes, adding plants in Spencer, Iowa, Oakland, Iowa, and Schuyler, Nebraska.[3] The sale was challenged on antitrust concerns by a smaller competitor, Monfort of Colorado; while Monfort prevailed in lower courts, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in 1986 that the sale was legal.[4]

In 1987, Excel entered the pork processing business when it acquired plants from Hormel in Ottumwa, Iowa, and Oscar Mayer in Beardstown, Illinois.[2] In 2001, Excel purchased Emmpak Foods, a maker of cooked meats, deli meats, frozen hamburger patties and case-ready ground beef.[5]

In 2004, the division's name was changed from Excel to Cargill Meat Solutions.[6] In 2005, Cargill brought back the Excel name as a brand for the division's "everyday" meat product line.[7] In July 2015, Cargill announced it was selling its U.S. pork processing business to JBS USA for $1.45 billion.[8]

Food safety

In October 2007, Cargill recalled nearly 845,000 pounds of ground beef after an outbreak of E. coli O157:H7 occurred in North Carolina.[9]

In October 2002, the Emmpak meat packing plant recalled 2,800,000 pounds of ground beef, also linked to an E. coli breakout. Emmpak is owned by the Excel Corporation, a subsidiary of Cargill.[10]
