ADM to Build Specialty Protein Plant in Campo Grande, Brazil

DECATUR, Ill.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 12, 2014--

Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) today announced plans to construct a soy protein production complex in Campo Grande, Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil, representing an investment of approximately US$250 million.

The complex, which will be located next to ADM's existing soybean processing facility in Campo Grande, will manufacture a range of functional protein concentrates and isolates to complement ADM's current North American production. These ingredients, which will be marketed by ADM's Foods & Wellness group, will give ADM's South American customers a variety of high quality options to add protein to various food and beverage products.

"We are making this investment to support our customers as they meet increasing consumer demand for protein," said Matt Jansen, ADM senior vice president and president, Oilseeds. "This complex will allow us to produce these functional ingredients locally, allowing us to serve more efficiently the growing needs of our food and beverage customers throughout South America."
