Meeting rapidly changing preferences: Ingredion targets specialty platform growth

 27 Jul 2018

Jim Zallie took up the role of CEO at major ingredient supplier Ingredion at the start of 2018. The US-headquartered supplier was formed back in 2010 when the two major players of Corn Products International and National Starch merged. Since then it has become a leading ingredient player that functions as one of the major consolidators in the industry, with acquisitions including the purchase of Penford in 2014. Ingredion used the recent IFT Food Expo in Chicago to highlight how concentrates producer Kerr Concentrates, which was acquired in 2015, and hydrocolloids supplier TIC Gums, acquired at the end of 2016, added scope and portfolio synergies to the business. The Ingredion, TIC and Kerr brands were showcased together on a single booth for the first time this year.
