Ingredion Agribusiness manages the supply of corn and the sale of byproducts for the North American starch plants.
Over 90% of Ingredion's corn supply is contract production with area farmers.  Ingredion uses over five different corn types such as waxy, high extractable starch dent, and high amylose varieties.
Ingredion corn suppliers are corn producers who consistently delivery above average corn quality.  They also track production, varieties planted and crop management data as part of their contracts with Ingredion.
Since Ingredion operates seven days a week, 24 hours a day, on farm storage is an important aspect of bein an Ingredion corn supplier.  Low temperature drying, and the ability to segregate different corn types is also very important.
Ingredion also produces wet milling byproducts for the feed industry.  These products include corn gluten feed (wet and dry), corn germ, steep water, and corn gluten meal.  These products are available from various locations by truck and railcar.
Ingredion can be found in every aspect of your life.

The function of an Ingredion product in finished goods can be as subtle as the smooth texture of a cream pie or as substantial as adhesives that hold a garage door together.
The product can be as obvious as the visible lines of glue that seal a shipping case or as delicate as the silky feel of hand cream.  It's the binder that unites the fibers in a nonwoven fabric, or it's the smooth surface of printing papers.​
