Ingredion: farming the land through capacity building

Working with farmers in Thailand, Ingredion is striving to ensure that high soil quality is maintained on its farms producing cassava.

Ingredion logoCassava farming is done entirely by hand and, since rotting crop remains naturally provide nutrients to the land, cassava farming does not lend itself to the same soil issues that other crops may face. It is therefore a secure, low-cost crop for farmers to grow and through its Thailand Model Farmer Programme, Ingredion is training farmers to share best practices. These farmers represent the optimal environmental stewards simply through their deeply rooted connection to their farming communities and natural landscapes. Their partnership with Ingredion enables them to stand economically but they nurture their soil, rivers and environment because of their ingrained relationship with the land.
