ADM scales down Russian operations

ADM announced March 11 that it is scaling down operations in Russia, expanding its support of the Ukrainian people.

“We join with the world in our horror over the unfolding conflict in Ukraine,” the company said in a statement. “We are focused first on the safety of our almost 650 Ukrainian colleagues, who are being subjected to increasingly indiscriminate attacks on civilian areas.”

The company is also rapidly growing its efforts to support the Ukrainian people, committing more than $5 million in financial and other support, including wheat for the Ukrainian flour milling industry; working with Ukrainian farmers to purchase their crops, putting more cash in the hands of those who need it; and using logistical expertise to import and distribute emergency food rations.

The company continued, “As the images and effects of this conflict continue to reverberate around the world, we are taking further steps”

ADM’s footprint in Russia is very limited, and the company has made the decision to scale down operations in Russia that are not related to the production and transport of essential food commodities and ingredients.

“ADM is a pillar of the entire global food system. We believe it is important to stand for what is right, which includes preventing further suffering by continuing to play our critical role in ensuring all people have access to the fundamental nutrition they need.”
