The Andersons Divests Florida Farm Center Locations
Citing a need to focus on its Eastern Corn Belt business, The Andersons Inc., a diversified agribusiness specializing in plant nutrition, has signed an agreement to sell its farm center locations in Florida to Wedgworth’s Inc., a local, family owned custom blend fertilizer operation based in Belle Glade. The agreement includes real estate, assets, and operations in Zellwood, Clewiston, Lake Placid, and Immokalee.
The Andersons originally obtained the Florida farm centers through the acquisitions of Douglass Fertilizer in 2008 and Immokalee Farmers Supply Inc. in 2011.
The Andersons’ products will continue to be available to customers in the region through a distribution agreement with Wedgworth’s.
