Based in Minneapolis, the 111-year-old food processing company produces ingredients like oils, syrup, and sweeteners, and wheat flour intended for consumption. Even as ADM saw its bottom line surge 10% to $89 billion, it moved to reduce costs — $150 million as of March of this year — by reducing its workforce and streamlining its manufacturing processes. Moving forward, the company continues to experiment with ways to create higher-value, higher-margin products derived from corn, oilseeds, and cocoa.
