The video also details the company’s non-GMO offerings, which are validated through the TRUETRACE® identity preservation program and enrollment in The Non-GMO Project, a non-profit organization dedicated to independent verification of non-GMO status. In addition, the video features interviews with farmers growing Ingredion corn for more than 40 years, and it walks the viewer through the company’s traceability standards and practices that provide the industry with a broad, secured source of non-GMO ingredients.
Since 2004, Ingredion’s TRUETRACE traceability program has protected the purity of Ingredion’s non-GMO offerings via third-party-audited best practices for segregation and documentation of non-GMO corn. Procedures for growers – regarding seed, farm practices and production fields – are strictly enforced and audited according to established protocols. Using identifiers for each grower, Ingredion can trace any batch of starch back to the farmers who grew the corn, the fields on which the corn was grown and the seed varieties and lots used.
The company’s non-GMO ingredient solutions meet appropriate standards and applicable requirements of the countries in which it operates.
In September, Ingredion announced its plans to invest approximately USD $100 million to increase its manufacturing capacity for specialty ingredients. The expansion is driven by a growing demand for the company’s ingredients.
