AGP To Expand Soy Processing At Hastings Plant

Spencer, IA: Ag Processing Inc. (AGP) has announced plans for a major expansion of the company’s soybean processing plant at Hastings, Nebraska.

Company officials say the expansion of the soybean processing operation is justified by the growth of soybean acres in Nebraska and in Kansas. The Hastings location is also the closest U.S. soybean processor to serve the growing demand among Pacific Rim markets.

Earlier this year, AGP closed its corn processing plant at Hastings due to “challenging economic conditions in the ethanol industry.”
