PEORIA, Ill., Nov. 17, 2011 – The Peoria, Ill., Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) corn processing facility is celebrating three years without a lost workday incident. In addition, total recordable injuries have declined by 88 percent since 2006.

“To celebrate three years of working safely, we are donating $3,000 to the Peoria Area Food Bank. We chose to donate to the food bank because when we work safely, we help fulfill ADM’s purpose as a company – to serve vital needs for food and energy. The donation also reminds us that our decisions to work safely impact more than just ourselves. We stay safe at work and at home for each other, for our families and friends,” said Eric Fasnacht, ADM’s plant manager for the Peoria corn facility.

A celebration event was held Nov. 10, featuring Randy Kampfe, vice president of corn processing for ADM; Bill Manley, regional manager, corn processing for ADM; and Chris Brinkman, safety manager, corn processing.
