DECATUR, ILLINOIS, U.S. — Archer Daniels Midland Company (ADM) announced on May 15 the signing of an expanded agreement that will make ADM a global distributor of Grupo Iñesta specialty products under the brands of HAF and Alfredo Iñesta.

“As the world looks to agriculture to meet growing needs, ADM is focused on strengthening our relationships with farmers around the world,” said Domingo Lastra, ADM vice-president of corporate growth. “Grupo Iñesta has developed an innovative line of products that can help raise farmers’ yields, and we are excited about the opportunity to bring these solutions to farmers and agricultural retailers around the globe.”

ADM currently distributes Grupo Iñesta products in Central and South America. The products include several lines of bio-activators and resistance inducers, which are designed to stimulate plant growth and improve overall plant health. With this new agreement, ADM will become the exclusive distributor of HAF and Alfredo Iñesta products in most countries globally. In other countries, ADM will be a non-exclusive distributor.

“ADM is an economic powerhouse in the agricultural industry, with efficient distribution channels and strong customer relationships,” said Alfredo Iñesta owner, Grupo Iñesta. “As we continue to expand our product line and customer offerings, we look forward to working with ADM to help farmers around the world improve their yields and returns.”
