Ingredion is partnering with HowGood, a SaaS data platform, to meet customer demands for sustainable ingredients. This partnership will deliver data transparency on Ingredion’s products.

“Our customers need holistic sustainable ingredient solutions to meet consumer and regulatory demands for greater transparency,” said Brian Nash, vice-president of corporate sustainability at Ingredion. “Partnering with HowGood provides third-party validation of the sustainability impact of our ingredients and enables our customers to confidently make informed decisions.”

By the end of 2022, the environmental and human impact of 50 Ingredion strategic growth platform ingredients will be made available to the industry via HowGood’s scorecard. HowGood measures the eight sustainability attributes of greenhouse gas emissions, processing, water use, soil health, working conditions, labour risk exposure, biodiversity and animal welfare.

“The scorecards include a full life-cycle carbon footprint, an overview of eligible sustainability claims customers could make, and the holistic social and environmental impact assessment they need to make formulation decisions and meet disclosure requirements,” said Alexander Gillett, president of HowGood.


This tool is helping Ingredion meet the company’s target of aligning new product development with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
