Allied Blending LP has a rich and lengthy tradition in the food ingredients industry. From a small and simple food-ingredients distributor, the company has evolved into a multi-dimensional manufacturing enterprise that deals in proprietary, value-added food blends and a diverse range of functional products that specialty food manufacturers have depended on for 30 years.
Our company roots date back to 1981 when Chuck Carvette and Peter Brooks, each with years of experience in the corn refining industry, founded Industrial Ingredients Inc., a distribution business. Three years later they formed Mississippi Blending Company, Inc. and purchased a variety of bakery-based formulations developed for ethnic niches in the food industry. They began production in a rented warehouse. By 1986, the company had outgrown its small facility and acquired what is now the Midwest Manufacturing Facility in Keokuk, Iowa.
Allied Starch & Chemical was formed as the parent holding company in 1995 and, in May 2005, the company acquired Ingredients Unlimited, Inc. in the Bell Gardens district of Los Angeles, which today is a southern California production and service center. That same year, in November, Allied Starch & Chemical purchased Del Rancho LP in Sachse, Texas.
In 2006, to better identify the parent company and its association with both long-standing and recently acquired product brands, Allied Starch & Chemical underwent a name change to Allied Blending & Ingredients, Inc. This tradition continues in 2017 with our acquisition by J. Rettenmaier & Sons located in Rosenberg, Germany. Although our name is new, our focus on superior and consistent quality products is still the same.
