Non-GM Products at Grain Processing Corporation

Many, if not all of you, are familiar with the GPC Non-GM program that both the Muscatine and Washington plants have in place to produce a number of finished goods including MALTRIN® products and alcohol. In addition to the finished good production, the Co-Product Department has also been actively carving out a market for Non-GM corn co-products.

Similar to the trend that we’ve seen from our food grade goods, the co-product industry is finding increasing interest in sourcing identity preserved (Non-GM) ingredients. For the last six years, GPC has been shipping Non-GM unrefined corn oil that is generated at the Muscatine plant to a small refiner who then purifies the product into a food grade form and markets it into the food industry for human consumption.

Non-GM corn gluten meal has also been a significant addition to our product mix garnering attention from a number of different feed and other end users who are able to work the feed into rations or their production process. Demand for Non-GM corn gluten meal varies in size from full railcars, trucks and even bagged product.

Within the last two years, after a substantial amount of collaboration between the GPC production staff and the Co-Product Department, we’ve been able to isolate and produce Non-GM corn gluten feed. There has been a recent trend in the dairy industry to move towards 100% Non-GM rations to meet consumer demand for Non-GM finished products. Our hope is to build up a base of dairies like these as a solid foundation in which to grow our Non-GM corn gluten feed business.

Even with the successes we’ve seen in our Non-GM co-product business over the last few years, there are certainly headwinds that we face expanding the size of our sales footprint. With our recent success in becoming Non-GMO Project Verified for a number of finished goods, we hope to bring this certification to our co-products as well in order to further add to our resume as a reliable shipper of these products.
