Fargo ND 58102
Managing Director Ingredient Processing Division
Red River Commodities was born out of the richness of this region, and we are now proud to play a leadership role in the industries we serve. This leadership position has come, in part, from our single-minded focus on doing what we do best…sourcing specialty crops directly from farmers and processing them for our customers. We have added unique processes and invested in new and modern facilities and equipment, to attain a higher level of product quality. When processing technology could not provide a desired product for a customer, we have turned to genetic hybrid seed research to find positive solutions.
Red River Commodities has taken steps to stabilize the risky business of agriculture production. Locating production facilities in a number of diverse geographical areas allows Red River Commodities to be less dependent on the growing conditions of a single geographic region. Our original plant, located in Fargo, North Dakota, is centered in the birthplace of confection sunflower. Our other plant in Colby, Kansas represents our strategy to develop new confection sunflower production areas. Our bird food plants located in Fargo, ND and Lubbock, Texas houses our growing bird food business. Zevenbergen, the Netherlands, is the home of our Red River – Van Eck BV poppy seed and caraway seed plant. For our custom roasting and packaging business, our SunGold Foods’ facility is conveniently located near our Fargo plant in Horace, ND.
