USA Grown, USA Made And USDA Organic Certified
Since 2014, we have been totally committed to becoming the leading producer and purveyor of guar gum powder within the United States. Originally known as West Texas Guar and acquired out of bankruptcy, rebuilding the brand name was no easy endeavor. It began with a hefty investment into a new state-of-the-art processing plant and the determination to repair formerly broken relationships with local farmers. Completed in 2016, our new facility performs bean splitting and powder production.
We are committed to building a sustainable future based on environmental awareness, economic profitability, and social responsibility. In the words of Arie Genger, CEO/Chairman of Guar Resources: “Our farmers needed to be reassured that they could trust the current ownership and management, and that we have a different vision for the company. GR embraces a grower / partnership mindset. Through the success of our growers, we too are successful. We assist our farmers in maximizing guar production per acre in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico.”
