ADM and Cargill work together on soybean project

06 July 2018

Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) and Cargill have launched SoyVen, a joint venture to provide soybean meal and oil for customers in Egypt. 

SoyVen owns and operates the National Vegetable Oil Company soy crush facility in Borg Al-Arab, along with related commercial and functional activities, including a separate Switzerland-based entity supplying soybeans to the Egypt crush plant. The plant’s daily crush capacity has been doubled to 6,000 metric tons in order to meet increasing Egyptian demand for higher-protein soybean meal and for oil, reducing the need for imports.

“By bringing together the strengths and capabilities of both Cargill and ADM in Egypt, this joint venture is uniquely positioned to meet specific customer needs in the growing Egyptian market”, said Ahmet Ertürk, CEO of the new company. “The demand for high-quality soybean meal and for oil from both the food manufacturing and animal feed sectors continues to rise and I am confident that customers will turn to SoyVen as the premier provider in Egypt.”

The joint venture consists of ADM and Cargill each holding a 50% interest, with the management team reporting to a board of directors appointed by the two parent companies. The joint venture’s assets do not include Cargill’s grain business and port terminal in Dekheila, or the ADM-Medsofts joint venture at the Port of Alexandria. Each company will continue its separate business activities in the country and region.
