Red River Commodities is a Great Place to Work

Founded in 1973, Red River Commodities has evolved from a specialty grain trading company to a key player in processing sunflowers and other select specialty crop agricultural products.

It is a safe, allergen-free alternative to peanut butter, especially in schools across the United States.

In addition to SunButter, the company also produces and packages sunflower seed snacks for major US companies and has a wildlife division for wild bird seed, which is widely available on retail shelves throughout the country.

Red River Commodities is more than just a business; it’s a community. The team’s core values encompass family, pride, passion, safety, and integrity. The company culture promotes hard work, authenticity, and mutual support, striving to achieve collective
