Home About Us

We are currently the largest North American producer of USP Food Grade Glycerin that is both kosher and halal certified, with a production capacity of 80 million pounds per year. Our glycerin is 100% vegetable-based, produced from oilseeds harvested and crushed in North America. It has a minimum 99.7% purity specification and is consistently among the highest quality available anywhere.

Our production facility in Claypool is approximately 100 miles Southeast of Chicago and serviced by the Norfolk Southern rail lines. This convenient location affords direct rail movements, with our fleet of new food-grade rail cars, to many locations in the Eastern, Southern, and Central United States. We are also within competitive trucking distance to many pharmacological, food and industrial manufacturing corridors in the region.
