Founded in Minneapolis, on September 30, 1902, Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (ADM), began operations as a regional linseed oil business. Today, with 41,000 employees, ADM serves customers in nearly 200 countries and plays a crucial role in agricultural supply chains globally.

To celebrate the 120-year milestone, ADM conducted a Fight Hunger Challenge to bring employees together around the world to raise money for hunger relief. As a result, ADM Cares has donated 1.2 million meals in partnership with the World Food Program, Feeding America, and Food Banks Canada.

“Over the past 120 years, our company has evolved from a regional startup into an irreplaceable leader providing needed nutrition to billions around the globe. We’ve transformed at many moments along the way, but unlocking the power of nature to enrich lives has always been at the heart of everything we do,” said Juan Luciano, ADM’s chairman, and CEO. “Every day, our 41,000 colleagues demonstrate our purpose and our values, not only by feeding the world, but by building a stronger, better future, whether through innovations in sustainability, or our commitment to the communities where we work and live. I’m proud of the work they’ve done and the journey we’ve taken together, and I’m excited about our bright future.”

Focused on delivering solutions for health and food security and continuing to improve its value chain, ADM develops new plant-based products for human and animal nutrition aimed to replace petroleum-based ones and decarbonize its industry.
