A new Minneapolis-based firm has begun working on infrastructure to focus on non-GMO and organic crops.
"Demand has outpaced the investment in the infrastructure," said Pipeline Foods chief executive Erick Jackson.
Jackson said his company is planning to invest between $300 million and $500 million on facilities, specifically focused on non-GMO and organic crops.
"The big guys don't look at this space yet as something very interesting," Jackson said. "Yet, it's gotten too big for all the little guys in it."
