Developing product attributes--and market opportunities.

As a leader in U.S. soybeans and other food ingredients, CHS has a depth of experience and expertise that goes beyond the field. We’ve invested millions in soybean product development. Which means our experts work closely with you to develop specific product attributes that meet the growing needs in world markets. We also work with you to identify market opportunities and manage your purchases from field to port.

As a company owned by North American farmers, CHS produces our food ingredients using primarily U.S. soybeans. In order to ensure a dependable year-round supply, we also source soybeans from other regions through our global origination offices. But we provide more than soy products, with a range of food ingredients made from CHS farmers’ sunflowers, wheat and other crops.

  • Soy

    Top food brands use soy protein to reduce fat, increase protein content and to extend traditional meat protein sources. Our experienced sales force and food technologists not only collaborate closely with customers to help them understand how to incorporate soy into their recipes. We also help develop proprietary formulations that give customers’ products higher protein profiles without sacrificing taste. CHS takes pride in providing technical innovation and relevant, customized solutions. We’re also continually improving and investing in our plants to ensure safe, quality foods. The result? Exceptional products that help customers grow their business. Read more

  • Sunflower Seeds

    Every day you have customers to satisfy, expectations to meet, and promises to deliver on. No one understands that better than CHS Sunflower.

    As a leader in the confectionary sunflower business, we supply ingredients to nationally known snack brands, serving more than one-third of the domestic kernel and in-shell market. We also export sunflower products to Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific Rim, and are the largest domestic producer of hulled millet for baking. We buy direct from growers—many our own members who grow sunflower seeds using CHS hybrids—so we only provide the freshest and the finest. Read more
