ADM acquires Czech oilseed plant

By Gerald Ondrey |

Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM; Decatur, Ill.; www.admworld.com) announced today the expansion of its European oilseed processing capabilities with the acquisition of ViaChem Group’s oilseed processing assets in Olomouc, Czech Republic. This facility, in the Eastern part of the Czech Republic, consists of an oilseed crushing, refining and biodiesel plant that produces oil and meal for the food, feed and energy markets. “This acquisition will allow ADM to expand further its leadership position in agricultural processing in Europe and strengthen our softseed processing activities in this region,” says Brent Fenton, managing director, ADM Europe. “This new site will support ADM’s expansion of its rapeseed and sunseed origination network in Central Europe. In line with ADM’s strategy to expand the size and global reach of our core model, this acquisition increases the Company’s presence in the growing Eastern European market.”
