Your food ingredient processing source

Red River Commodities has six specialty crop manufacturing facilities in the heart of sunflower and other specialty crop growing areas. We selected the locations to diversify the risks of production agriculture. For instance, we’ve found that if one area has lower yields due to weather conditions, other areas are able to offset those yields. This allows us to offer customers consistent products and reliable seed sources.

Inside each facility, state-of-the-art equipment and the latest technology, guided by our trained employees, transform crops into food ingredients through specialty crop processing and/or roasting & packaging.

Need nut-free ingredients? Our roasting and packaging facilities are completely peanut- and tree nut-free. We handle orders of every size, and are equipped for distribution including rail cars, trucks, pallets, containers and bags.
