Global agribusiness giant ADM has received funding of US$26.3M under Canada’s National Trade Corridors Fund for the expansion of its grain terminal at Port Windsor, World Grain wrote.

The project would increase export capacity to markets in Europe, Latin America and the USA for agricultural production from southwestern Ontario farmers in Essex, Kent, Lambton, Middlesex and Elgin counties, the 12 January report said.

“The investment being made by the government of Canada for the ADM grain terminal expansion project at Port Windsor will allow ADM to maintain and grow our operations,” Kevin Wright, general manager, Great Lakes region, ADM Agri-industries, was quoted as saying.

The project would involve improvements to the terminal’s infrastructure and export loading capacity, Wright added.

ADM has 369 grain storage facilities in the USA and Canada with 434.34M bushels of licensed grain storage, making it the largest grain handling and storage company in North America as listed in Sosland Publishing Co’s 2024 Grain and Milling Annual.
