Corn Products International Announces Internet Availability of 2008 Annual Meeting Materials via New SEC Notice and Access Rule

WESTCHESTER, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 24, 2008--Corn Products International, Inc. (NYSE: CPO), a leading global provider of agriculturally derived ingredients to diversified industries, today announced the Internet availability of proxy materials for its Annual Meeting of Stockholders under the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission's new Notice and Access rule.

Under the Notice and Access rule, companies can now satisfy their proxy materials delivery requirements by delivering a "Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials" to stockholders, providing Internet access to the proxy materials, and providing free-of-charge a printed set of proxy materials by mail to any stockholder requesting them.

Corn Products International has elected to take full advantage of the new rule to minimize the impact on the environment and maximize cost savings relating to delivery of its proxy materials. By doing that, Corn Products has reduced the number of printed copies of its proxy materials by more than 70 percent versus last year, which has both reduced the environmental impact of producing and delivering these materials, as well as lowered the printing, paper, processing and mailing costs.

Corn Products International's 2007 Annual Report, Form 10-K and 2008 proxy statement have been filed with the SEC and can be found in the Investors section of the Company's web site at www.cornproducts.com.

Corn Products International will hold its 2008 Annual Meeting of Stockholders at 9:00 a.m. CDT on Wednesday, May 21, 2008 at the Westbrook Corporate Center Meeting Facility, Westbrook Corporate Center, Westchester, Ill.
