Benson Hill, Inc. (the “Company” or “Benson Hill”) a food technology company unlocking the natural genetic diversity of plants with its cutting-edge food innovation engine announced the closing today of its acquisition of a soybean crushing facility in Seymour, Indiana.

This investment, announced on September 13, 2021, will further solidify the Company’s position in the value chain to support production of a robust portfolio of proprietary, non-GMO, identity preserved and sustainable soy protein and oil ingredients for the human food and animal feed markets. The facility will ultimately have the capacity to process Benson Hill’s proprietary soybean varieties, including the first commercial plantings of its Ultra-High Protein soybeans, which will be harvested this fall.
