American agribusiness Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) marked the completion of a project to convert its Spyck, Germany from rape and sunflower seed crushing operations to soy processing with an initial run of non-GMO soybeans at the site, a press release announced Wednesday.

“The extended soybean crushing capacity in Spyck will help us meet customer demand as the European non-GMO soybean market continues to grow,” Jim Turney, general manager of European soybean crush at ADM, said in a statement. “The additional flexibility that we now have also gives us the ability to quickly respond to changing market dynamics for rape, sunflower, and soy in the future.”

The firm said it has been working with famers and industry organizations involved in accreditations to create new opportunities for soybeans in northwestern Europe. ADM owns another non-GMO soybean processing facility in Straubing, Germany.

“We are committed to growing the soybean industry in this region, and we are working hard to help farmers in France and along the Danube see the value of growing soybeans within their rotation,” said ADM Commercial Manager for Oilseeds in Germany Rene van der Poel in the release.  

Company officials said the move was part of ADM’s growth strategy, with the site’s scale, flexible crush capabilities, and managed production costs per unit expected to provide long-term success.
