Purchasing Refined Corn Products

Who do I contact to purchase corn refined products (starch, syrup, sweeteners, etc.)?

Please contact the corn wet milling companies directly. A list of CRA Members with information about which products each company produces and links to their Web sites where you can find contact information is available. Please click here.

Where can I get information on purchasing corn for export?

The U.S. Grains Council lists a number of providers of commodity corn as well as details on purchasing specifications. Please see their Web site at http://www.grains.org/.


Which corn refining company has the greatest share of the corn sweetener market?

The CRA does not track information related to product pricing, market share or individual companies. Industry analysts such as Credit Suisse, LMC International, McKeaney-Flavell, or SK Patil and Associates can provide detailed reports on product markets, pricing, market share, and other market-related information. Note: None of the analysts noted above have an affiliation with the CRA, nor does the CRA recommend or endorse any particular analyst. The list is informational only and not comprehensive.
