What we Do

We don’t own farms, but we work with growers, supporting them with personalized services and innovative technologies. We partner with them to develop and enhance sustainable practices and transform their bounty into products for consumers around the globe.

We take natural products and turn them into staple foods, sustainable, renewable industrial products and an expansive pantry of food and beverage ingredients and solutions.

From plant-based proteins to probiotics, we’re growing nutrition trends and working closely with our customers to create custom, delicious solutions from nature to meet consumer preferences.

 

We do the same with animal nutrition products. Today, more people want to feed their pets the same kind of clean, healthy products they eat themselves and they expect a commitment to the humane and sustainable treatment of livestock and poultry.

Our innovation and expertise are helping people live healthier lives. Around the world, our experts—including food scientists, flavorists and chefs—offer innovative solutions for consumers seeking foods, beverages and supplements to support health and wellness.

Our global footprint combines with local insights to give us capabilities few other companies have—ensuring that we get the very best ingredients from around the globe to our customers, wherever they may be.
