In the fall of 2017, Perdue AgriBusiness opened our commercial soybean processing plant in Bainbridge, Pa. The new plant created both an in-state market for soybeans and a source of soymeal for Pennsylvania’s livestock and dairy farms while tapping into existing waste-to-energy through the Lancaster County Solid Waste Management Authority to bring a net reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over current operations.
One of the most highly efficient, technologically advanced, environmentally sound soybean processing plants in the country, the Bainbridge operation promises to positively change the economic equation for Pennsylvania farmers who have been sending their beans out of state for processing and bringing back meal for animal feed.
Perdue Farms became a new sponsor for the National FFA Organization and is working with the organization to provide FFA members with the opportunity to grow into leaders, build their communities and strengthen agriculture through Supervised Agricultural Experience grants.
During the fall of 2017, Perdue Farms provided a $10,000 donation through its charitable giving arm, the Franklin P. and Arthur W. Perdue Foundation, to the National FFA Foundation to fund SAE grants in selected states. FFA members who wish to initiate or improve their supervised agricultural experiences (SAEs) can apply for an SAE grant. The SAE Grants Committee selects the recipients of grants, which are based primarily on financial need.
Since the construction of the first grain-receiving facility in Salisbury, Md., in 1960, Perdue AgriBusiness has been focused on bringing value to the farm gate—recognizing that viable crop farms are essential to our company’s supply chain. While our business has grown significantly in size and scope, we remain focused on helping farmers increase the profitability of their operations.
Perdue AgriBusiness is expanding our ability to supply internal and external customers with conventional and organic feed ingredients. Trusted sources, documentation, testing, and the network and expertise to ensure identity preservation provide confidence in the quality and integrity of our feed ingredients.
We’re also developing a wide range of animal nutrition products.
