Opened in 1961, the U.S. Grains Council’s Japan office has contributed to the rapid growth of the livestock and feed industries as the Japanese diet has shifted more towards meat and dairy consumption and helped tremendously increase sales of U.S. feed grain imports. To maintain and further develop the close relationships, USGC/Japan serves as a bridge between the importers, grain processors and end-users in Japan, an important partner of U.S. agriculture and the U.S. corn industry.
In order to fulfill its mission of building markets for America's grains, the U.S. Grains Council operates 10 international offices as well as its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Please contact international staff in the Washington office first. Washington staff will know who is available to provide the best and quickest response to your questions.
