History

In 1902, George A. Archer and John W. Daniels began a linseed crushing business. In 1923, Archer-Daniels Linseed Company acquired Midland Linseed Products Company, and the Archer-Daniels-Midland Company was formed. Every decade since our corporate inception, ADM has added a major profit center to our agribusiness: milling, processing, specialty feed ingredients, specialty food ingredients, cocoa, nutrition and more.

With a worldwide transportation network and more than 265 locations, ADM continues to partner with farmers and agriculture to create markets for their products around the globe.
