ADM, a global leader in human and animal nutrition, has announced the opening of a new premix production line at its pet nutrition facility in Chierry in France. The state-of-the-art line will concentrate on premium and functional pet premixes, which can be used in the production of dry and wet pet food, treats, and dietary solutions, thereby greatly expanding ADM’s pet nutrition capabilities.


“Consumers increasingly turn to food and treats as a source of overall health and well-being for their pets. We’re excited to continue investing in the pet nutrition space to help our customers meet these growing demands for high-quality, responsibly produced pet nutrition products,” said ADM pet nutrition president, Jorge Martinez. “Our new pet premix capabilities allow us to explore new ways of blending specific ingredients, opening up incredible potential for innovation that helps position ADM as a go-to partner.”

Last year, the company announced its acquisition of a majority stake in Pet Dine, Pedigree Ovens, The Pound Bakery and Nutra Dine. ADM is stressing that the acquisition significantly expands the company’s pet treat and supplement capabilities to further meet global demand for high-quality, nutritious pet solutions. The company considers this investment similar to ADM’s 2017 acquisition of Crosswind Industries, a manufacturer of contract and private label pet treats and foods and provider of speciality ingredients. More recent enhancements to ADM’s pet nutrition infrastructure include new and upgraded facilities in the US and globally, including a pet food culinary kitchen and pilot extrusion line at the Animal Nutrition Technology Center in Decatur, Illinois. 

The industry-leading facility builds upon ADM’s legacy of innovation in animal nutrition, offering scope to enhance customer collaboration and develop fully tailored nutrition solutions. The centre is also equipped with a laboratory that enables pilot-scale projects and allows for testing of new product development prior to full-scale production.
