We have produced barley starch since 1987 at Koskenkorva. Our starch plant is a forerunner in the bio and circular economy. The operations of the plant include producing starch, ethanol and animal feed raw material as well as carbon dioxide capture. A bio power plant utilises our effluents. Our goal is carbon neutral production by the year 2025. Our barley starch is produced using Finnish barley. Our raw material is locally sourced and our production takes place close to our customers.
