Westway Trading Corporation originated in the 1940s, starting as 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 animal feed and bulk liquid storage business in collaboration with ED&F Man.
Following an initial strategic partnership in the early 1990’s, 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, making 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 included 31 manufacturing facilities in North America.
