Welcome to the Export Exchange 2012™ meeting information website.
More than 200 international buyers and end-users had flocked to Minneapolis from Oct. 22-2, 2012 to meet with U.S. suppliers and to hear from industry and government leaders about the near- and long-term prospects for U.S. export capacity. CHS President and CEO Carl Casale's keynote address set the theme: managing risk in the face of soaring demand for feed grains, a short U.S. crop in 2012, and major uncertainties on the geopolitical horizon. USDA Chief Economist Joe Glauber, farmer and industry leaders, and observations from major foreign buyers and end-users of U.S. feed grains rounded out the picture.
As the global marketing arm of U.S. farmers and agribusinesses, and a trusted ambassador for free and fair trade between U.S. agriculture and customers around the world, the U.S. Grains Council believes that expansion of established export markets and development of new markets will drive the success of American agriculture for years to come.
