Our food ingredients business is helping define what's possible for the industry

Clean label

We are one of the largest providers of organic storage and handling facilities in the marketplace. We also own one of the most sophisticated food processing soybean plants in North America. When it comes to clean labels trends, we’re at the forefront of the market with identity-preserved grains.

Sustainability

Our visibility into the broader supply chain helps us make smarter choices when it comes to utilizing by-products and excess in new ways. We also address sustainable practices by complying with ethics and labor laws, as well as environmental regulations.

Traceability

Products can be traced forward and backward, maintaining full traceability. For identity-preserved crops, we follow the growing and handling process from start to finish to ensure ingredients maintain their identity-preserved status.

On-trend solutions

We’re ready to meet the changing demands of our customers. We also specialize in plant-based, non-GMO and organic supply chains.

Customer story

Ingredients insights help food manufacturer develop their marketing story

One of the greatest benefits of working with a partner of our scope is the opportunity to leverage our relationships across the supply chain. 

When our customer wanted to learn more about the growing process for the yellow Canadian peas used to make the textured pea protein in their alternative meat product, we helped them gather firsthand insights.

We were able to introduce our customer to a farmer in our network via Zoom for a Q&A and provide pictures of the farm for the customer to use in their marketing story.

The knowledge and transparency of our supply chain enabled the customer to learn more about the entire process–from pea to textured pea protein.
