As of February 22, 2019, SunOpta’s specialty and organic corn and soy business will operate under the ownership of Pipeline Foods. This acquisition will open up more opportunities for all farmer partners, expand buying options, and assist in the incorporation of variety and complexity to farmers’ rotations. Ultimately, this will open up new financial streams and additional marketing options, like food grade products and non-GMO as an option for transitional markets.
While there will be a transition period as SunOpta’s specialty and organic corn and soy business is integrated into Pipeline Foods systems, partners will continue to work with the same contacts and shouldn’t encounter any changes in overall experience working with Pipeline Foods.
