Bunge buys corn milling assets J.R. Short

Bunge North America has finalized its purchase of the assets of the Corn Division of the J.R. Short Milling Company.

"This purchase enables us to balance our operations in a core North American business — corn dry milling — so that we now have two locations in the western half of the U.S. and two in the eastern half," said Todd Bastean, vice president and general manager, Bunge Milling.

"This additional plant enables Bunge to better serve our existing customers and reach out to new customers with an expanded line of products." The agreement transfers ownership of the dry corn milling and specialty processing operations of J.R. Short that are in Kankakee.
