Grains Council Travels to Mexico to Talk Trade

U.S. Grains Council Chair Brent Boydston and Past Chair Josh Miller went south of the border for meetings with major stakeholders in the U.S. and Mexico corn trade market. The goal was to maintain positive communications and relationships with one of U.S. agriculture’s most valuable customers.

“With the recent political obstacles and challenges to rail transport logistics affecting grain imports from Mexico, it’s vital for the Council to work in tandem with the USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service in Mexico to keep shipments moving,” Boydston says. “U.S. producers and Mexican importers and end-users alike need reassurance that trade will continue operating smoothly, and it’s our duty to facilitate that goal.”

The delegation also met with staff from a leading global food production company that offers products in 112 countries to discuss how U.S. producers can meet the company’s demand. USGC is trying to keep U.S. ag as the premier option for Mexican importers.
