ADM to expand non-GMO soybean processing in India

Post a comment05-May-2014

US-based ingredient supplier Archer Daniels Midland Company will increase its production of non-GMO lecithin by expanding capacity at its soybean processing facility in the Maharashtra city of Latur, in India. 

The move comes in tandem with increased processing of rapeseed at its existing facility in Hamburg, Germany, one of ADM’s global network of 270 plants.

An emulsifier, lecithin is used in a wide variety of food processing applications, including bakery, confectionary, chocolate and as a release agent in several food systems. 

ADM currently offers non-GMO lecithin, but the expansion will complement ADM’s current North American production and allow the company to produce non-GMO lecithin locally for customers in Europe and Asia.

Our customers are seeing increasing consumer demand for non-GMO ingredients,” said Dan Larson, vice-president for lecithin at ADM Foods & Wellness. 

Bruce Bennett, another ADM Foods & Wellness vice-president, added: “[The move] provides a good foundation for future growth in the non-GMO speciality ingredient segment.”
