In Canada, ADM sources, stores, transports and processes crops such as wheat, cocoa and oilseeds at a total of 42 facilities manned by more than 1,000 employees. These operations include wheat mills and bakery mix plants; oilseeds crushing plants and refineries; cocoa processing facilities; grain elevators; and plants that blend fertilizer and manufacture animal feed and feed ingredients.
Our Canadian wheat mills, which produce a host of flours, bakery mixes, and ingredients such as bran and wheat germ, are located in Calgary and Medicine Hat, Alberta; Winnipeg, Manitoba; Montreal, Quebec; and Midland, Mississauga, and Port Colborne, Ontario. Their collective daily processing capacity is approximately 4,000 metric tons.
ADM also operates two oilseeds processing facilities in Canada. Our Windsor, Ontario, plant crushes soybeans and canola for use in various food ingredients and animal feeds. The plant is served by two grain elevators and two grain procurement offices, and a Montreal sales office helps market its products. In Lloydminster, Alberta, we crush canola and export much of the resulting oil to Asia for food applications, and to Europe for use as a biodiesel feedstock. Canola meal is used principally for livestock feed. Our Lloydminster plant is served by elevators in Watson and Carberry.
Our Canadian plants in Georgetown and Mississauga, Ontario, are key to our efforts to produce fine chocolate, cocoa powders, cocoa butter and cocoa liquor for companies in the confectionery, bakery, dairy, beverage and snack-foods industries.
ADM’s Alliance Nutrition subsidiary, which manufactures, markets and distributes nutritional premixes and supplements for animal feeds, also has a substantial presence in Canada. In Woodstock, Ontario, our operations include a premix plant, a feed-additive blending plant, a feed mill and a warehouse. Several marketing, sales and technical- support functions are also based in Woodstock. In Lethbridge, Alberta, Alliance Nutrition operates a premix-blending plant, a phosphate-distribution terminal and a sales office for premix and other feed products.
