Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) Company has crushed its first non-GMO soybeans at its facility in Spyck, northwestern Germany.
Located close to the Dutch border, the site was previously only used to crush rape and sunflower seeds.
The new switch capacity helps ADM long-term aim to expand its network of European soy processing plants, enabling it to better service its soybean meal customers and support local farmers in increasing the region’s soybean acreage.
The company also crushes non-GMO soybeans at the same facility.
In the past year, it has been working with farmers and industry accreditation bodies to create further opportunities to grow and market soybeans across northwest Europe.
