• New systems will increase unloading speed and improve product quality

ALPHARETTA, Georgia, Oct. 3, 2016—Golden Peanut and Tree Nuts, a subsidiary of Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM), today announced that it has reopened its Vienna, Georgia, warehouse after installing upgrades that will improve unloading speed and product quality. The first truckload of farmer stock arrived at the upgraded facility last week.

“We’re pleased to have completed phase one of our Vienna improvements on time and on budget, and to see farmers already arriving to unload their crops,” said Greg Mills, president of Golden Peanut and Tree Nuts. “The upgrades we have made—and will continue to make—at Vienna will make for a more efficient unloading process for farmers, and improve the quality of the stock that goes from Vienna to our processing facilities. We’re looking forward to a great harvest season in Vienna.”  
 
The upgrades include:
• Replacement of receiving equipment.
• Improved ventilation and aeration.
• New sand screens and extra conveyors.

This comes on the heels of our announcement just a couple of weeks ago that we have completed the expansion of our Dawson, Georgia, processing facility,” Mills added. “At Golden, we know that just being one of the nation’s biggest handlers and processors of peanuts isn’t enough. We’re enhancing our operations and growing our business. With each new project, we help to ensure that Golden is the peanut and peanut product company of choice for farmers and customers alike.”

Suppliers or customers with questions about the Vienna facility should contact Greg Mills at (770) 752-8225.
