- Archer Daniels Midland Co is augmenting its facilities' capabilities in Enderlin, North Dakota, and Windsor, Ontario, by adding soybean crushing flexibility.
- The Enderlin facility will add soybean crushing to the canola and sunflower seeds it already processes, which will capitalize on North Dakota's expansion of soybean crops. Processing is planned to begin in June.
- At the Windsor plant, its current canola-processing line will be converted to a flexible line for soybean crushing, which is currently producing high returns for farmers on the eastern side of the Canadian Prairies. The work should be wrapped up in the fourth quarter.
ADM recently announced that it was laying out a new sustainability policy for its soy suppliers, who must adhere to "a broad set of social, environmental, legal and agronomic standards, including their labor practices, water and soil usage, solid waste management, observance of land rights, legal compliance, and the responsible use of fertilizers," according to ADM.
