ADM in Spain
In Spain, ADM operates a trading office for grains and a specialty ingredients production facility, together employing more than 120 people. ADM is also at the forefront of next generation microbiome, microbial biotechnology and nutrition solutions used to promote healthier lifestyles.
As a result of ADM’s 2014 acquisition of Alfred C. Toepfer International, a global merchandiser of agricultural commodities and processed products, ADM operates an office in Madrid, which imports grains for meals and feedstuffs to supply compounders, millers and bio-ethanol producers.
Following ADM’s acquisition of WILD Flavors GmbH, one of the leading suppliers of natural ingredients to the food and beverage industry, ADM operates a food ingredients processing facility near Valencia, located in the heart of the Spanish citrus-growing region. The facility processes natural raw materials into food ingredients such as specialty juice concentrate, fruit sweetening systems, coloring foodstuffs, plant extracts, citrus oils and flavors, as well as functional ingredients. These ingredients are used in beverages, dairy, confectionery and bakery applications. The company has a strategic location next to Valencia´s harbor, one of the largest commercial ports in the Mediterranean.

ADM’s acquisition of Biopolis, a global leader in microbial technologies with a strong food ingredients portfolio, added 11 different labs, two production plants, and over 15 years of R&D experience to the ADM portfolio. Biopolis addresses new ways to approach health and nutrition concerns holistically through capabilities rooted in science and synergies. Our offerings such as cell and molecular biology, microbiology, nutrition & metabolomics, bioprocess, and genomics, allow for robust R&D capabilities covering all stages of product development.
