American agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) recently revealed plans for a “multi-million-dollar project” that will add non-GMO soybean processing capabilities to its oilseeds plant in Mainz, Germany.

“A key pillar of our growth strategy is our expanding portfolio of differentiated products, which are powering our ability to meet growing and evolving customer needs around the globe,” Jaana Kleinschmidt, general manager of ADM Hamburg and country manager, Germany for the firm, said in a release. “Soybeans play an increasingly important role in the wider food sector in Germany. We are pleased to continue to add the ability to process non-GMO soybeans to meet growing demand across human and animal nutrition, while providing local farmers with increasing opportunities to market their crops.”

Work on the facility is expected to reach completion in the third quarter of 2023. The company previously carried out a similar expansion in 2016 at its Straubing, Germany location.

“With this expansion in Mainz, we are now creating additional incentives for local farmers to grow more non-GMO soybeans and to incorporate soy into crop rotation farming,” said Rene van der Poel, general manager of ADM Straubing, in a statement. “At the same time, we are following through on our commitment to one of the key pillars of the Fields of Europe framework, which aims to meet growing demand for non-GMO, European origin food and feed products.”
