A little about Corn Corporation

CPC International Inc., one of America’s largest food companies, is a leading corn refiner as well as the producer of many of America’s best-known and top-selling brands: Mazola corn oil, Argo corn starch, Hellmann’s and Best Foods mayonnaise, Mueller’s pasta, Knorr soup, Skippy peanut butter, and Thomas’ English muffins are all CPC products. But as its name implies, CPC International is also a distinctly international company, producing more than 2,000 food products and several dozen wet-milled corn products at over 100 manufacturing plants located in 47 countries. In 1988 57% of the company’s food revenues came from outside the United States more than any other major American food company. Today CPC traces its roots back to two main predecessors: the Corn Products Refining Company and Best Foods, which merged in 1958 to become the Corn Products Company.

A little about Corn Products:

CPC has transformed itself from a grain producer and processor into a major international consumer grocery producer. Consumer foods are now about 80% of total sales, while corn refining has been reduced to 20%. Today the company has five major consumer foods groups—mayonnaise and corn oil; Knorr products; bread spreads and cheese; bakery and pasta; and starches, syrups, and desserts.

Ingredion Incorporated (formerly Corn Products International, Inc) is an ingredient provider based in Westchester, Illinois. The company turns corn, tapioca, potatoes, and other vegetables and fruits into ingredients for the food, beverage, brewing, and pharmaceutical industries and numerous industrial sectors.[4] It has more than 11,000 employees around the world in 44 locations, and customers in more than 60 markets in over 40 countries. In 2017, net sales were $6.18 billion.[2
