ADM, one of the world's largest agricultural processors and food ingredient providers, has operations in 16 European countries. Our European headquarters are located along the shores of Lake Leman, in Rolle, Switzerland, between Geneva and Lausanne.

Our Rolle office, ADM International Sàrl, oversees operations in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and India. ADM Europe provides vital links in the agricultural processing chain, working closely with farmers at one end of the chain and manufacturers at the other, to turn crops into an array of products. We source, transport and process crops into ingredients for food products, animal feed, renewable fuels and naturally derived industrial chemicals.

In the EMEA region, ADM covers each step of the value chain split between four business units: Origination, Oilseeds, Carbohydrate Solutions, and Nutrition.


ADM's Origination business, which includes Global Trade, Global Ocean Freight and Structured Trade Finance (STF), utilizes our extensive global transportation network and port operations to buy, store, transport, distribute and market agricultural commodities, including oilseeds, corn, wheat, milo, oats, rice, barley, pulses, and feed meal.

Our Global Trade group connects ADM’s global origination and processing businesses to the final customer (destination marketing) or ports, mobilizing assets worldwide. Our Global Ocean Freight group includes a fleet of owned and chartered bulk vessels – ranging in size from Handy to Handymax to Supramax and Panamax. It serves as the backbone to ADM’s oceangoing transportation capabilities. On the financial side, our STF group creates incremental value by offering tailor-made funding solutions to both customers, suppliers and partnering banks.


ADM's Oilseeds processing is one of the world's most diversified oilseeds business. In the EMEA region, we crush and further process soybeans, soft seeds (sunflower seeds, rapeseed) and other oilseeds into vegetable oils and protein meals used in food, feed, energy and industrial products.

Our portfolio

Crude vegetable oils produced by our crushing activities are sold as they are or further processed into liquid oils and food products such as margarine and shortening.

We offer one of the broadest portfolios of quality oils and fats available to the food industry, from soybean, canola, rapeseed, cottonseed and sunflower to coconut, palm, palm kernel, shea, peanut and various blends for tailored solutions.

Our capabilities extend into tailored packaging solutions through our bottling facilities. From one liter PET bottle for retail or food service to intermediate bulk containers (IBCs), or flexi-bags for larger requests, we offer a wide range of options to meet our customers’ varied needs.

As the world’s energy needs continue to rise, there is greater demand for fuel from cleaner, renewable and sustainable sources. Our vegetable oils are used to produce biodiesel, the alternative fuel of choice in much of Europe.

Our oilseed protein meals are principally used as ingredients in commercial livestock and poultry feeds, and include non-GMO soybean meal.

Carbohydrate Solutions

ADM is one of the world’s largest corn processors and wheat millers. In the EMEA region, our Carbohydrate Solutions business converts corn and wheat into sweeteners, starches, proteins, flours and bakery ingredients for food, feed, paper-making, corrugated board and building products.

Our portfolio

Combined with our product development and application expertise, our portfolio includes a range of native and modified starches that function as thickeners, extenders and stabilizers. From glucose to maltose and fructose, we also offer a wide selection of liquid and dry sweeteners to meet varying needs in terms of sweetness, viscosity and functionality.

Our wheat-based flours, bakery mixes and proteins, ensures we provide a complete portfolio of tailored, plant-based products to meet unique customer needs.

We also offer a line of ethanol products used in spirits, pharmaceutical, chemical and biofuels.


ADM’s Nutrition business is one of the world's leading producers of natural flavors, plant-derived and specialty ingredients for the food, dairy and beverage industries. In the EMEA region we offer a comprehensive portfolio of ingredients to help our customers deliver products that address specific challenges relating to taste, texture, nutrition and function.
