Our Purpose

CII exists to deliver innovations for better food and stronger communities – today and for generations to come – by viewing every challenge as an opportunity to bring new ideas to life in a reliable, adaptable and sustainable way that puts our customers and our people first.
CII strives to be a support for our customers regardless of their needs. Whether it is a sudden, unexpected demand, assistance with their process or manufacturing, or a custom formulation to align with specific product labeling, health or nutritional claim, we go the extra mile to be our customers best business partner to help them succeed. To support historical customer needs, we have added facility certifications and even purchased new equipment. We strive to find a path forward and rarely find an obstacle we cannot overcome.

Our Story

At CII, we believe that every challenge represents a new opportunity to generate a greater impact, not just for our customers but for the world around us.

Our Values

We strive to always do the right thing when new situations are presented to us.


We do what we say we will do – for our customers, our suppliers, our community and each other.

Mutual Respect

We appreciate the differences of our customers, suppliers consideration for each person’s thoughts, feelings and unique value.

Community Impact

CII strives to be a force for good in the world. We are determined to make a positive impact – not just for our customers – but for our employees and their families, the communities we are a part of, our suppliers and the world.
We have a responsibility to our community and future generations to develop efficient manufacturing practices, utilize resources to the best of our ability, and reduce waste. At CII, we create and refine our product lines to emphasize food solutions that can be used by food recovery programs, distribution organizations, and animal feed operations to reduce food waste that would otherwise be sent to landfills. We are united with our community partners not only in this effort to fight food insecurity, but in many other initiatives that create lasting improvement.
CII donates both time and money to multiple philanthropic causes dedicated to improving our community and the rest of the world. In 2020 our team had 130 volunteer hours due to Covid restrictions. As we move forward, we are hoping to exceed these hours in 2021.
