"Consumers today want transparency, pristine quality and assurance their food is healthy and made to the highest quality standards," said Patrick Homoelle, president of GPC.
"With NPI's plant-based, non-GMO, organic and gluten-free ingredient solutions, this acquisition is a great fit with our field to family portfolio of businesses."
NPI, based in Grinnell, IA, is a leading manufacturer of full fat soy ingredients made from non-GMO or certified organic soybeans.
In addition to soybeans, NPI also processes other pulses such as chickpeas. These ingredients often provide both nutritional and functional improvements to many categories.
"I am tremendously proud to welcome the NPI team to GPC," added Jimmy Kent, senior vice president of sales for GPC.
"We are investing further into sustainable quality food production through this family-to-family, Iowa-to-Iowa acquisition, helping us increase our diverse portfolio of products that help feed the growing world."
GPC's primary products include high purity alcohol, corn starches and maltodextrins. GPC sells to customers that use GPC ingredients for beverage alcohol, food products, nutraceuticals, pharmaceuticals, personal care and industrial starch applications.
