ADM expands to meet sweetener demand

12 December 2016

Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) has announced that it is expanding its overall grind and finishing capacity for sweeteners and starches at its corn wet mill facilities in Turkey and Bulgaria. 

Commenting on the move, Pierre Duprat, president, ADM Europe, Middle East and Africa, said:
“We continue to see substantial opportunities for starch-based ingredients in Europe and Middle East markets, and, with these expansions, ADM will be well-positioned to meet growing customer demand across the region.

"By increasing production capacity and expanding our capabilities, we are ensuring that we will be able to offer our customers an expanded range of sweeteners and starches as sugar production quotas in the EU expire, and as demand from food and paper markets in Turkey and the Middle East continues to grow.”

ADM acquired full ownership of corn wet mills in Adana, Turkey, and Razgrad, Bulgaria, along with a 50% ownership stake in a corn wet mill in Hungary, in November 2015, and has worked since then to achieve a smooth integration into the company’s global corn business. The plants produce a complete range of starch products, including liquid sweeteners, native and modified starches, crystalline fructose and dextrose.

In June 2016, ADM also completed the acquisition of a Morocco-based corn wet mill.

“One of our key strategic goals is to grow through the expansion and diversification of our global corn footprint,” continued Duprat. “Our recent acquisitions in Turkey, Bulgaria, Hungary and Morocco all represent major steps in meeting these goals. And we are continuing our efforts to enhance returns on all fronts: In addition to enhancing production capacity, the improvements we have made in Turkey and Bulgaria will also improve operational efficiency at these facilities, increasing our domestic and overseas sales competitiveness.”
