Casco to become Ingredion Canada

Casco Inc. will soon be no more.

But fear not, the Port Colborne facility that produces corn-based products, is not going anywhere. It’s just changing its name. As part of a worldwide phased roll out, parent company Ingredion Inc. will be changing Casco to Ingredion Canada Inc.

“This name change marks a key milestone in our evolution. Our new name, Ingredion, better reflects our global presence and focus on ingredient solutions,” said Jack Fortnum, executive vice president and president of Ingredion North America.

There are six Casco facilities in Canada, five in Ontario and one in Quebec.

Port Colborne plant manager Lee Whitley said the name change doesn’t change the company’s commitment to the city.

“We are proud to be part of the Port Colborne community and will continue to be a responsible corporate citizen and community partner,” he said.

The worldwide integration of the Ingredion name to all its subsidiaries will be completed in 2013. The Port Colborne name change will become official on Oct. 1.
