USA — American commodity trading company Scoular has renamed its food ingredient business: Scoular Food Innovation in an effort to showcases its capabilities in providing innovative ingredients to customers.

The company further notes that the new name reflects its “food industry expertise and experience supplying on-trend ingredients to meet growing consumer demand.”

“Scoular has long been a reliable partner delivering leading-edge food ingredients,” said Brian Hansen, general manager for Scoular Food Innovation.

“The new name highlights the experience our customers get when working with us — access to custom, innovative ingredients, solutions and service.”

Although new, Scoular Food Innovation carries the backing of Scoular’s global supply chain network and financial stability, with the 130-year-old company posting over US$9 billion in sales.

It will also enjoy long-term relationships with numerous top global food companies because of its experienced team, deep portfolio of high-quality, plant-based non-GMO and organic ingredients.

The business will focus on delivering ingredients that provide superior function, texture and flavor, according to a statement from the Omaha, Nebraska based company.

The new business is expected to leverage in-house research and development to create and commercialize innovative product formulations.
