ACJ is an ingredient, logistics and supply chain management company in the pet food ingredient industry. The purchase is expected to close in July 2023.
In November 2022, The Andersons bought Bridge Agri Partners, which also specializes in providing ingredients to the pet food industry.
"We are excited to once again expand our pet food ingredient portfolio and our physical presence in the central region of the U.S.," said Bill Krueger, The Andersons COO and president trade and processing. "We are looking forward to this opportunity to provide value-add ingredients and processing as well as enhanced supply chain services for the pet food industry."
The deal includes ACJ's headquarters in Lake St. Louis, Missouri, and its facility locations in Joplin, Missouri, Webb City, Missouri, and Monroe, Wisconsin.
