Ingredion announces new initiatives for sustainability in food ingredients market

By partnering with local farmers and sourcing products sustainably, Ingredion ensures it is advancing sustainable initiatives in the APAC region for long-term growth

US-headquartered Ingredion Incorporated, a leading global provider of specialty ingredient solutions to the food and beverage manufacturing industry, is furthering its sustainability initiative in the Asia Pacific (APAC) region. Under the 2030 All Life plan, which aims to bring together the potential of people, nature and technology to make all life better, the strategy allows Ingredion to further align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals while driving continuous innovation in our sustainability efforts.

Globally, the company is making rapid progress toward its key milestone of having 99 percent of all crops and 100 percent of the company’s Tier 1 crops (corn, tapioca, potato, stevia and pulses) to be sustainably sourced by 2025.

Ingredion’s latest investment in China, Shandong South production facility thrives on sustainable sourcing of non-GMO corn from local farmers. On the other hand, the company’s end-to-end process from crop to manufacturing are fully integrated in Thailand, mitigating shipping costs regionally and reducing the impact of transportation on the environment.

By the end of 2022, the environmental and human impact of 50 Ingredion strategic growth platform ingredients will be made available to the industry via HowGood, a SaaS data platform with the world’s largest database on food and personal care product sustainability, to meet and surpass customer demands for sustainable ingredients.
