Minneapolis Atkinson Mill Team

ADM is pleased to recognize our extraordinary team of employees at the ADM Atkinson Mill in Minneapolis for earning the Company’s most significant operational award for the second time. The team’s total commitment to co-workers’ safety, producing high-quality ADM products and services, and promoting positive stewardship of the environment has set an example for ADM facilities around the world.

Plant manager Charlie Hatch said his team is committed to earning the award every year. “If we communicate to our colleagues what the goals and expectations are, and give them the tools to achieve these goals, they will continue to come through with outstanding results,” he said.

Congratulations to the Atkinson Mill team for continuing to achieve the standard of excellence required to receive this exceptional award.


Once considered the Flour Milling Capital of the World, now Minneapolis is home to just two wheat flour mills, both owned by ADM. The Atkinson mill opened in 1917 and was named after its original owners who were pioneers in handling flour by bulk. ADM Milling has operated the Atkinson Mill for nearly 50 years. The mill workers grind hard red spring and winter wheat to produce flour sold to bakeries and bakery mix companies. The flour is used in breads, tortillas and pizza crusts, as well as other bakery mixes. The facility also produces wheat middlings, a feed stock product made from the bran and other non-flour constituents of the wheat kernel. Wheat middlings are sold to commercial animal feed manufacturers to add to their animal feeds.
Every day, the 27,000 people of Archer Daniels Midland Company turn crops into renewable products that meet the demands of a growing world. At more than 240 processing plants, we convert corn, oilseeds, wheat and cocoa into products for food, animal feed, chemical and energy uses. We operate the world’s premier crop origination and transportation network, connecting crops and markets in more than 60 countries.
