Building a modern food system.

How do we transform our food system to bring delicious, nutritious food to our growing population? How do we empower farmers to grow the next generation of crops, and enable food producers to turn those into healthier, tastier ingredients?

These are the questions we’re answering here at Benson Hill. Every day, we empower innovators to tap the natural genetic diversity in plants to develop healthier, more sustainable foods.

Better food for everyone.

It’s a big vision we help make possible by combining advances in big data analytics and machine learning with genome editing and plant biology. It all happens within our revolutionary crop design platform called CropOS™.

We’re committed to bringing the power of CropOS™ to seed company partners and food producers because we are committed to bringing better products to farmers and consumers.

    Better for people.

    CropOS™ enables ingredient and food producers to increase protein density, boost fiber, reduce processing and increase oil quality.

    Better for the planet.

    With CropOS™, we can pinpoint key properties such as drought tolerance and disease resistance that naturally exist within a plant species to conserve natural resources, reduce the use of pesticides and reduce food waste.

    Better tasting, too.

    Healthier, tastier legumes, grains, fruits and vegetables benefit everyone, and CropOS™ makes it possible.

Empowering a community to build a better world.

Our multidisciplinary approach – which combines genetics, biology, software and machine learning – is key to our vision to help improve food production by empowering innovators across the food and agriculture supply chain.
