Cargill Buys Chinese Soy Crush Plant

Acquisition boosts company's footprint in world's top soybean importer

Cargill Inc. won a judicial auction to buy a soybean processing plant on Alibaba Group Holding Ltd.’s Taobao website, China’s top e-commerce platform said in a statement.

The winning bid for the assets of Shandong Xinliang Oils & Fats Co. was for 421 million yuan ($62 million) and is subject to approval by the local court, an online confirmation letter showed.

The Cargill acquisition comes less than a year after the trader bought a 34% stake it didn’t already own in Hebei Jiahao Grain and Oilseeds Co., another soybean processing plant in China, from its joint-venture partner.
