Cargill will retain its two other soybean processing facilities in Western Europe.
 
AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS — Bunge completed the acquisition of Cargill’s  soybean/rapeseed crush and oil refinery and the beans discharging operation alongside its processing plant in the port of Amsterdam, the Netherlands, as well as its soybean/rapeseed crush facility in Brest, France.

Bunge and Cargill announced the intended agreement last August.  The deal came to a close shortly after the European Commission approved the acquisition. As part of the transaction, all employees associated with the business will transfer to Bunge.

Bunge said the two sites are now an important part of its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) regional operations and global soy crush platform. The new sites will allow Bunge to further expand its global oilseed processing footprint in key Northern European destinations and optimize existing global flows and logistics to serve customers.

Cargill will retain its two other soybean processing facilities in Western Europe, in the ports of Barcelona in Spain and Liverpool in the United Kingdom, to distribute protein meal to its customers.
