Cargill is partnering with Starpro, a food-grade tapioca starch producer in Thailand, to expand its specialty tapioca starch offerings in the Asia-Pacific region. The partnership will support the product processing requirements of food manufacturers in the region, particularly for convenience and foodservice categories. The agreement covers a full range of locally manufactured tapioca starches, which complement Cargill’s wide portfolio of starches and starch-based texturizing solutions made from various raw materials.

The partnership follows other efforts by Cargill to expand its specialty starches business in the Asia-Pacific region, including an expanded cold-water swelling starch line in Pandaan, Indonesia, and the construction of a modified starch plant in Songyuan, China.

Cargill, Minneapolis, MN, is a global food corporation with more than 155,000 employees in 70 countries. The company connects farmers with markets, customers with ingredients, and people and animals with food. (6/21)
