The Andersons Inc. Grain Group recently announced that it has purchased Purity Foods Inc., a processor of organic and conventional ancient grains based in Hudson, Mich.
“Our investment in Purity Foods is consistent with our objective to expand the Grain Group’s food ingredient business,” Andy Vollmar, Food Ingredients & Specialty Grains director, said. “The Andersons has been a longtime supplier of food-grade corn, oats, soybeans and wheat to the U.S. food market. We are now moving into milling ancient grain products with a direct, transparent supply chain, giving visibility to and for our farm customers as well as our food manufacturers. We are excited about the new capabilities this acquisition gives our company.”
Purity Foods has a 650,000 bu. storage capacity, along with two production lines. The site is certified by the American Institute of Baking and Quality Assurance International. It also has a cleaning facility that is capable of conditioning and color sorting organic and conventional grains.
