ADM adds aquaculture feed line to China plant

The group is also building a new premix plant in Xiangtan.

US agriculture giant Archer Daniels Midland (ADM) is adding aquaculture feed production lines at its existing Nanjing complex in Jiangsu Province in eastern China, reports Qconline.com.

"One of the main pillars of our strategy to increase shareholder value is enhancing our footprint in areas of growing demand," said Brent Fenton, president of ADM Animal Nutrition.

The aquaculture lines in Nanjing will be able to produce 50,000 metric tons of extruded and pelleted fish feeds during the six-month aquaculture season, which runs from April to September.

In addition, the company is building a new feed-premix facility in Xiangtan, central China, with a capacity to produce 120,000 metric tons annually of premix, concentrate, animal-complete and fish-complete feeds.
