Global ingredients company Ingredion has entered into a joint partnership with Verdient Foods Inc., owned by Oscar-winning film director James Cameron and his wife, environmental advocate and entrepreneur Suzy Amis Cameron.

Ingredion makes starches, flours, and sweeteners out of grains, fruits, and vegetables. It will invest $140 million to expand into a range of plant-based proteins.

The funding will go toward various projects including the support of the Camerons’ manufacturing facility in Saskatchewan, Canada, and Ingredion’s Nebraska-based factory. The collaboration allows for the production of pea protein isolates and pulse-based flours in the coming year.
