15305 Minnetonka Boulevard
What began in 1989 as a Cargill research project looking for innovative uses of carbohydrates from plants as feedstock for more sustainable plastics has quickly matured into the innovative materials for which we are known today. Our company is the first to offer a family of commercially available biopolymers derived from 100 percent annually renewable resources with cost and performance that compete with petroleum-based packaging materials and fibers. We apply our unique technology to the processing of natural plant sugars to create the proprietary polylactide polymer marketed under the Ingeo brand name.
