Chris Cuddy, president of ADM’s Carbohydrate Solutions business, said, “We’re continuing to evolve our Carbohydrate Solutions business to align with growing and changing demand, driven by the global trends of food security and sustainability. 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. 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 broad portfolio.”
The platform meets demand for more sustainable products and solutions across a wide variety of applications, from construction to packaging to personal care. BioSolutions delivered $100 million in new annualised revenue in 2021, and has continued swift expansion, with $55 million in new sales growth in 2022.
“We’re continuing to expand the frontier of what is possible to meet demand for sustainable, plant-based products and solutions. From our bioplastics agreement with LG Chem, to our work with NET Power and 8 Rivers to build a zero-emissions power plant in Decatur, to our advancement of the decarbonisation of our footprint, we’re powering growth and living our purpose with the continued evolution of our Carbohydrates Solutions business,” concluded Cuddy.
