International Buying Teams Head To U.S., Kicking Off 2016 Trade Team Season

Trade teams are critical components of the U.S. Grains Council’s (USGC’s) work with overseas customers that help to build relationships and instill long-term confidence in the U.S. grain export system.

The Council has a busy summer and fall planned this year with more than 30 trade teams scheduled to visit the United States, starting with a team from Taiwan this week focused on learning about swine production and the U.S. coarse grains value-chain.
