DRIVING RURAL ECONOMIES
The European starch industry is traditionally based at the heart of the rural areas from which it sources its agricultural raw materials. Directly employing more than 15.000 men and women across 19 members states and the UK, we help drive rural economies throughout Europe.
VITAL OUTLET FOR FARMS
Sourcing the 24 million tonnes of agricultural raw materials - notably wheat, maize, starch potatoes, barley, rice and peas - needed to make our plant-based ingredients, mainly local or always local when possible, the EU starch industry serves as a vital outlet for roughly 60.000 European farmers.
Through innovation we support farmers diversifying their income and we work together to find solutions that deliver both on ever-changing consumer demand and protecting the environment.
