Archer Daniels Midland Company has opened its global headquarters and customer center in downtown Chicago.
“As we continue to grow our company, this location allows us to more easily reach global markets, while keeping us in close contact with U.S. farmers, customers and operations,” says Chairman and CEO Patricia Woertz.
About 70 employees are based in the two-floor space, which also includes a culinary facility for ADM to showcase its broad portfolio of food ingredients. ADM expects by the end of this year to acquire WILD Flavors GmbH, following an announcement this July.
ADM’s ingredient portfolio and product applications include:
