MGP Launches Corn Oil Product Following Installation of New Process

“We had a great group of experts working on this initiative, and the success of their efforts is shown by the fact that the project was completed on schedule and in a very smooth, well-coordinated manner,” said Randy Schrick, Vice President of Engineering. “The result is the introduction of a new product that we expect to add increased value to our distillery processes and output.”

Corn oil is contained in corn germ and is recovered from syrup produced during the alcohol production process before being added to dryers used in the manufacture of distillers feed. It is sold principally for use in producing biodiesel, and also as a supplement, or “fattening agent,” for poultry feed applications, Schrick noted.

Schrick credited the efforts of several plant employees and staff for “giving us the ability to expand our distillery product offerings through this project.” He also cited “the outstanding work and expertise” of GreenShift Corporation, the company which developed the patented extraction system and provided direct assistance during the installation phase at MGP.

MGP is a leading independent supplier of premium spirits, offering flavor innovations and custom distillery blends to the beverage alcohol industry. The company also produces high quality food grade industrial alcohol and formulates grain-based starches and proteins into nutritional and highly functional ingredients for the branded consumer packaged goods industry. Distilled spirits are produced at facilities in the adjacent towns of Lawrenceburg and Greendale, Indiana. The company is headquartered in Atchison, Kansas, where a variety of distilled alcohol products and food ingredients are manufactured.
