Certified Transitional organic crops
To meet growing demand for organic products, Bunge North America now offers Certified Transitional dry milled corn ingredients.
These ingredients are made from US-grown transitional corn certified by Quality Assurance International, an accredited organic certifying agency, and Bunge pays farmers a premium price for the corn.
The process for organic certification takes three years of transitioning land from conventional to organic farming before growers can
sell crops at a premium organic price. This cost keeps farmers from making the switch. Certified Transitional enables farmers to sell
crops during those three years at a higher price, which encourages them to make the change.
"Thanks to our robust supply chain and long-standing network of farmers - including those progressing to certified organic -
Bunge is uniquely positioned to provide a reliable supply of Certified Transitional corn ingredients to complement the rest of our
