Cargill announces expansion at Eddyville, Iowa Bioprocessing complex

Cargill is expanding one of their key corn-milling sites, a plant that grinds over 275,000 bushels daily, in Eddyville, Iowa. The $128.3 million project includes upgrades to bioprocessing equipment, expanded capacity of its wastewater facility, expansion of the research and development area and new office space. Seventeen new jobs will be created to support the operation’s latest growth, bringing total employment to over 500 people at the facility.

The Cargill Eddyville plant is a $1 billion-dollar investment that creates food ingredients for products “working to feed the world.” Its 2,000-acre campus is one of its largest food ingredients operations across the country, and allows the company to supply a variety of products to co-location partners, Ajinomoto Health & Nutrition North America, Ajinomoto Heartland and Wacker Biosolutions.
