ADM in Australia

Since 1991, ADM Australia has served customers throughout the Pacific Rim, including New Zealand and the South Pacific, with a range of specialty food, feed and industrial ingredients made from corn, soy and wheat. ADM employs 45 people in Australia.

Grain Merchandising

ADM’s grain merchandising business, based in Adelaide, originates Australian wheat, barley, canola, sorghum and pulses, serving both domestic and international customers. The business was formerly part of Alfred C. Toepfer International, a global merchandiser of agricultural commodities and processed products, which ADM acquired in 2014.

ADM can provide export solutions for both bulk and containerized products from all grain exporting ports in Australia. ADM often sources commodities directly from growers located in the main cropping areas of Australia, supported by ADM’s national grain origination network.
