Transformation. It’s what we do every day by taking a kernel of corn and converting it into sustainable products to help meet the global demand for feed ingredients, specialty alcohols and low carbon fuel. We are in the midst of a broader transformation – expanding our ability to extract additional ingredients from the same annually renewable crops. We are proactively utilizing technologies and partnerships that allow us to harness the potential of these resources. Through this endeavor, we are leading the way toward more effective, more sustainable solutions that make a positive impact on the world.
Our transformation includes deploying world class mechanical and process technology at each of our locations and combining the knowledge and resources of exclusive strategic partnerships with our expertise in fermentation to develop nutritious, valuable ingredients and solutions.
This includes reducing our operating expenses through our Project 24 initiative, expanding our ability to isolate the highest value proteins and making them available as feed ingredients for the pet, aquaculture and dairy markets and expanding our ability to produce higher-value alcohols to meet global demand for sanitizers and spirits.
Our goal is to transform our entire platform by 2023. We believe this will result in a growing financial contribution along the way as we execute on these initiatives.
