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, nutrition and more.
ADM Japan Ltd. was established in Tokyo in 1978. Today, our team of 60 ADM employees serve food and feed needs for customers across the nation. ADM acquired WILD Flavors in 2014, and in Japan, we can support customers final product application needs in our Shibuya laboratory.
We serve Japanese customers by marketing grains, oils, food ingredients, flavors, juice, feed, and industrial products as a raw material supplier. Our extensive array of food ingredients, along with our expertise, also makes us the ideal solutions provider for private-label and food-service customers.
Japanese consumers care greatly about the quality, safety and security of their food. ADM Japan uses its extensive global distribution network to import a wide variety of products from several countries to supply innovative solutions to our customers. We have an applications lab for product development and QA/QC functions to secure the safety of food and ensure that we are meeting customer requirements. We store our products at strategic locations throughout Japan so that we can always deliver on time and safely.
