Company Profile

Based in centrally located Arden Hills Minnesota, Oziama serves the Twin Cities metropolitan area as well as the rest of Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and North and South Dakota providing food ingredients.

Oziama specializes in Cargill products, but we also carry a broad variety of ingredients from other food ingredient manufacturers.  We focus on providing high quality ingredients required by today’s large scale commercial food manufacturers.  We excel with companies that use large varieties of products – each in less than truckload quantities.

OZIAMA has been in business for over 25 years. The genesis of Oziama was the AMAIZO company.

AMAIZO was also known as the American Maize Products Company. Maize is the Native American word for the corn that the company turned into a large number of products for commercial and industrial uses.  AMAIZO was purchased by the Cerestar Company and is now part of Cargill, Inc., one of the world’s largest, privately-owned businesses, providing food and agricultural products around the globe.

Oziama International was established to fulfill the role of distributing starch products.  Since its establishment, Oziama has grown and expanded. In 2001, the company moved to a 35,000 sq. ft warehouse in Fridley Minnesota.  In 2010, Oziama moved to an even larger facility in Arden Hills.

Oziama is a primary distributor for the full line of Cargill starches and gluten as well as sugars, dextrose, salts, and spices. Today, Oziama serves the largest meat, dairy, and seafood processors in Minnesotas well as other Fortune 500 food manufacturers in the four state area bordering Minnesota.  Recently, we have expanded to provide ingredients to a variety of other manufacturers and distributors around the U.S.
