Vice President, Purchasing

Tony Armitage

Our job is to meet the needs of our partners every day and help them be successful.

Tony leads a group of experienced industry professionals responsible for procuring food ingredients and commodities such as sugar, dairy ingredients, cocoa, oils, starches, flour, and food-grade chemicals.

With nearly 30 years of purchasing experience, including 18 years with IFPC, Tony brings profound insights to our partners who rely on his group to help manage cost, quality, and market risk.

This is a significant responsibility, but that’s what drives Tony and his team. While there are risks in trying new approaches to procurement, there are also opportunities to do a better job for our partners and customers, which is the reason we’re here.

Tony also has a long and successful history in the business. He started his career with Archer Daniels Midland Company as a grain merchandiser. He also traded crush and managed risk with ADM’s soy processing division before moving on to a sales and marketing position.

Couple that with a B.S.B.A in Business Administration from Villanova University, and his Master’s in Business Administration from the Olin School of Business at Washington University in St. Louis, and you have a highly qualified leader who loves what he does.

He’s also a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and is active in various industry trade organizations, such as the St. Louis Agri-Business Club and the American Feed Industry Association.

“What makes it fun as a business is we still seem able to try new things and take risks.”
