ADM increases starch production at Minnesota facility

Expansion is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2023.

ADM (Chicago) is increasing starch production at its facility in Marshall, MN, in order to meet growing demand for ingredients for food and beverages. Expansion is scheduled to be completed in the second half of 2023.

“Three years ago, we announced that we would be phasing out production of high-fructose corn syrup at Marshall and expanding starch production to support increasing demand for products like sustainable packaging,” explained Chris Cuddy, president of ADM’s Carbohydrate Solutions business, in a press release. “In the short time since then, demand has continued to expand, both for food and beverage customers as well as for the broad array of plant-based products that make up our fast-growing BioSolutions platform. This significant capacity expansion will help ensure that we can continue to meet our customers’ needs across this portfolio.” The BioSolutions platform spans everything from packaging to personal care.
