Pipeline Foods LLC, the first U.S.-based supply chain solutions company focused exclusively on non-GMO and organic food and feed, announced it is expanding with a new regional office in St. Louis, Missouri. The new location will focus on increasing the value-added services Pipeline Foods provides across the supply chain, including clean processing of specialty grains and oilseeds into ingredients for food and feed companies.
“At Pipeline Foods, we want to accelerate the adoption of regenerative farming practices in the U.S.,” said Eric Jackson, chief executive of Pipeline Foods. “We are bringing supply chain expertise and infrastructure to the specialty processing market in the Midwest, clearing the path for farmers who want to move to organic processing, and simplifying the supply chain for organic food and ingredients.”
The company highlighted Missouri’s strategic location and agricultural strengths as key reasons for the move, and it expects to be up and running by the end of the year. Pipeline Foods recently acquired Malden Specialty Soy in southeastern Missouri, which is the company’s first large specialty processing facility producing hexane-free organic and non-GMO soybean meal as well as mechanical expeller-pressed oils.
Missouri’s robust food production sector includes more than 300 companies, with the capacity for many more, due to Missouri’s leading role in agricultural products including rice, soybeans, corn, sorghum, cattle, turkeys and hogs. And Missouri gives food producers rapid access to global markets, extensive distribution options, a friendly regulatory environment and a diverse customer base.
