20/05/2015: ADM to construct feed plant in China

Archer Daniels Midland Company has announced that it is building a new feed-premix plant in the city of Zhangzhou, in southern China, bringing to four the number of plants in the company’s premix network in the country.
 

“Demand for safe, high-quality animal feed in China is growing, and we are expanding our feed business there to meet that demand,” said Brent Fenton, president, ADM Animal Nutrition.

“China has ambitious goals for food security and safety, which are creating great opportunities to provide more of the consistent, quality feed products that ADM is known for. This plant will be well-positioned to serve Fujian, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan—four provinces with substantial and growing swine, poultry and aquaculture industries.”

The Zhangzhou plant, which is expected to be complete in the fourth quarter of 2016, will manufacture a range of nutritional feed premixes that can be added to animal rations to promote good health and optimal growth. Such premix formulas typically contain various vitamins and minerals, amino acids such as lysine and threonine, and special feed additives, among other ingredients. 


ADM will manufacture an estimated 30,000 metric tons of premix products per year at the Zhangzhou facility, which will also provide 80,000 metric tons of additional capacity for the production of complete feeds and concentrates. The facility is expected to employ about 150 people, and will complement ADM’s existing premix facilities in Dalian and Tianjin, in northern China; and a facility under construction in Nanjing, in eastern China.
