History of Westway
Westway Trading Corporation originated in the 1940s, starting as an Industrial Molasses Company in the Northeast as a family-owned molasses trading business. Since then, Westway has evolved from just supplying molasses into the liquid feed and bulk liquid storage business in collaboration with ED&F Man.
Following an initial strategic partnership in the early 1990s, Westway came under full ownership of ED&F Man in 1995. Under the umbrella of ED&F Man, Westway followed a path of growth and diversification. Additionally, we made a number of strategic investments in bulk liquid storage capacity and liquid feed manufacturing capabilities.
Westway has successfully expanded its geographic footprint by growing the business organically and through acquisitions. With the acquisition of the Cargill Molasses business in 1997 and the purchase of Tate & Lyle PLC’s United Molasses Company in 2002, Westway has expanded its operations to include 25 manufacturing facilities in North America.
