VANCOUVER, WA (March 2022) The premier grain exporter of the Pacific Northwest for more than 50 years, United Grain Corporation (UGC) unites American grain producers and global customers with services built on integrity, reliability, safety, and inclusivity. These services will be the focus of “United for Success,” UGC’s future vision for expanding operations capacity and evolving brand culture to unite producers, suppliers, and service partners, meeting changing customer demands, and feeding the world, safely.

“Our ‘United for Success’ brand evolution marks a new chapter for UGC,” said CEO of UGC, Augusto Bassanini. “More than a commodities brand, UGC is a brand that prioritizes service, building trusted relationships, and creating success for all.

To provide a clear path for UGC team members to embody the company’s new brand vision, “United for Success” will provide a roadmap for team members to follow and ensure the organization operates in accordance with it. This roadmap allows the UGC brand to change and adapt over time. Additionally, each UGC department will have its own developmental roadmap to ensure team members are contributing to the company’s success.
