Agspring Signs Deal to Acquire General Mills Idaho Grain Business

Kansas City, KS – February 27, 2014— Agspring today announced it has signed a definitive purchase agreement to acquire the General Mills grain operations in Idaho. The terms of the deal were not disclosed. The transaction is expected to be completed before the end of May, 2014.

Agspring will focus on improving efficiency and expanding operations including increasing elevator storage and handling capacity in Idaho. Operations will continue to be managed locally, while that team will benefit from corporate support, national supply chain planning and financial backing from Agspring headquartered in Kansas City.
