Amylum Bulgaria also gives customers access to the wide range of ingredients, services and solutions that ADM offers. ADM employs more than 330 employees in Bulgaria. History In 1994, Amylum Bulgaria joined Eaststarch,, at the time a joint venture between the Amylum Group (a part-owned subsidiary of Tate & Lyle PLC) and ADM. In 2000, Tate & Lyle acquired full ownership of the Amylum Group, and the location became a joint venture between Tate & Lyle and ADM. In 2015, ADM acquired full ownership of Amylum Bulgaria, and today operates as a subsidiary of ADM. Local and Global Business Amylum Bulgaria is committed to growing our business locally. Following a series of capital investments between 1995 and 2012, we began producing crystalline dextrose for customers in Europe and around the globe. By using only domestic corn in our products for the domestic market, we support local farmers and contribute more broadly to Bulgaria’s economy.
