A plant-to-plate solution that values farmers

To make better protein from the beginning, we’ve built a closed-loop, farm-to-fork solution. Along with seed breeders and food manufacturers, our farmer partners are a valued part of this solution. 

In the conventional agricultural system, most farmers are incentivized to grow high-yielding varieties. That’s because the focus is on fuel, animal feed and industrial markets. Our focus is on consumers, so we reward our farmer partners for protein density and flavor. We give them better premiums and agronomic support. And our location at the heart of agricultural America allows us to build lasting relationships with them. These relationships are the foundation of our strong farm network

As part of our closed-loop solution we have soy crush facilities in Iowa and Indiana, where we process the beans our farmers harvest. These facilities help us meet the growing demand for Made From Better™ clean soy protein ingredients.
