Pipeline Foods, a Minneapolis-based company focused on non-GMO and organic food and feed, is adding a regional office in St. Louis as part of its expansion in the Midwest.
Pipeline Foods, a supply chain solutions company, plans to open the St. Louis office by the end of the year. It will be led by Wade Ellis, director of food and ingredients.
“We will expand the portfolio of value-added services and drive a clearer path from farmers to food companies in support of growing consumer demand,” Ellis said in a statement.
Earlier this year, Pipeline Foods acquired Malden Specialty Soy, a specialty processing facility in southeastern Missouri. The company is investing in infrastructure and new equipment to double the capacity at the Malden facility.
The Malden facility will be an anchor for Pipeline Foods’ food and ingredient division, producing organic and non-GMO soybean meal as well as mechanical expeller-pressed oils.
Pipeline Foods announced in September that it planned to invest between $300 million and $500 million in the non-GMO, organic food and feed sector over the next three to five years.
