Meet Jessica Koster: Your Link To A Greener Future
Cargill had the customer in mind when they hired Jessica Koster, product manager for Cargill’s BiOH polyols business.
This former 4-H Club member from a family farm in Iowa is set up for agribusiness and has just the right chemistry to assist Cargill in its pursuit of renewable-based products.
Since the launch of the BiOH brand, Koster has marketed Cargill’s transformative BiOH polyols as an exciting ingredient brand to furniture makers and designers; her efforts are paying off. Several upholstery manufacturers have signed on in North America. The business is growing in other geographic markets.

Koster has contributed to Cargill’s success since she held an undergraduate internship there through Iowa State University. Cargill hired her full time in 2001 as a Supply Chain Analyst. She flourished in her job by day and earned her MBA at night. When the BiOH polyol business was looking for a product manager in 2005, they snapped up Jessica.
She smiles as she notes rising visits to the BiOH.com site, inquiries from the furnishings industry and the rail cars of BiOH polyols rolling to foam plants across the country.
Thanks to her leadership, today’s thriving companies in the industry tout that they, too, are looking to more responsible choices for their products.
