Archer Daniels Midland Company officially opened its fertilizer blending plant in Villeta, Paraguay — the first large-scale facility of its kind in the nation, with a daily production capacity of 2,500 metric tons. ADM has approximately 80 employees at the facility and utilizes an extensive contractor workforce.

"In 2012, the Villeta fertilizer facility will be joined by an adjacent soybean processing facility with a daily crush capacity of 3,300 metric tons. This fertilizer facility and the forthcoming soybean processing facility will create hundreds of additional, permanent jobs for the area, benefiting the entire community."

A ceremonial ribbon-cutting event featured remarks from the Honorable President of the Republic of Paraguay, Fernando Lugo, and from ADM Chairman, CEO and President Patricia Woertz.
