ADM Opens New Enzyme Lab in California for Livestock Feed
USAgNet - 04/24/2018

Archer Daniels Midland Company announced that it has opened its new enzyme lab in Davis, California. The lab's scientists will work with ADM's other R&D facilities around the globe to develop enzyme products to serve a variety of markets, and will partner with China-based Qingdao Vland Biotech Group Co., Ltd., to develop and commercialize feed enzymes to improve animal health and nutrition.

"We're excited to open this new research facility lab in Davis, expanding our ability to develop and commercialize a wide range of enzymes, and advancing our animal health partnership with Vland," said ADM Chief Technology Officer Todd Werpy. "In addition to an accomplished staff of scientists and researchers and a great partner in Vland, our new lab will benefit from its location near the University of California, Davis, which provides access to world-leading expertise and resources in the areas of food science and nutrition as well as animal health and agriculture."

He says ADM has collaborated with UC Davis in the past, and that the company looks forward to an even closer relationship now.

Earlier this year, ADM and Vland signed a joint development agreement under which the companies will share enzyme-producing strains as a basis for the development of feed enzymes. Products developed under the agreement will be commercialized by both companies.
