ADM Urges Reinstatement of Grain Corridor

ADM Urges Reinstatement of Grain Corridor


CHICAGO—ADM (NYSE: ADM) today issued the following statement:

"ADM strongly urges all involved parties to come together to reinstate and return to full operation the UN Grain Initiative. As one of the leading growers of wheat, corn and barley, Ukraine is a critical pillar of global food security, and the grain corridor has allowed Ukrainian farmers to continue to serve that vital role even amid Russia’s invasion." 

"Since February 2022, in addition to prioritizing the safety of our Ukrainian colleagues and their families, ADM has been focused on supporting Ukrainian farmers and ensuring the flow of food to those who need it around the world. We'll continue to use all of our resources and work with all of our partners to find other routes for Ukrainian grain to reach world markets, but there is no true substitute for Ukraine's ports on the Black Sea. ADM is committed to supporting an agreement for safe passage of food and ag products through the grain corridor. We believe this is critical to serving global nutrition needs, to Ukraine's agriculture sector, and to economic recovery when the war is over."
