about us Founded in 1943, GPC is a privately owned company with a solid history of innovation and a vision for continued success in the future. Our chosen mission is to manufacture, distribute and market customer-specified food, nutraceutical and industrial grade products of uncompromising quality. GPC's substantial investment in the finest people, facilities, technology and customer support services reflects the seriousness of that commitment to quality. The cornerstone of our growth is hard work—we work with our customers, as well as for our customers, to satisfy their individual needs. Our growth comes from expanding established markets, introducing new products, as well as improving our existing product line. We also create new marketing opportunities through the knowledge gained from research and practical experience. GPC has a broadly diversified line of products, mainly derived from nature's abundance: corn. These products include maltodextrins, corn syrup solids and starches for the food, nutraceutical and personal care markets; ethyl alcohol for beverage and industrial use; starches for the paper, corrugated box, textile and wallboard industries; corn oil; and animal nutrition ingredients. GPC customers worldwide have discovered the advantages of using our various products to improve process efficiency, functionality and end product quality. That customer satisfaction is why GPC continues to be a leader in the industry. Grain Processing Corporation remains privately-owned, with the third generation of the Kent family holding leadership positions in the management of the company. GPC is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kent Corporation, Muscatine, Iowa. Additional affiliates include Kent Nutrition Group, Kent Pet Group and Kent Precision Foods Group.
