U.S. Soy Hosts International Trade Delegations in South Dakota

Jun 09, 2019

WHAT: Beginning June 9, the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and the South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council (SDSRPC), will host more than 50 international delegates from over 10 countries on a tour of the upper Midwest to demonstrate one of the biggest advantages of buying U.S. Soy, our transportation system and infrastructure. Five international delegations will represent countries from Southeast Asia, South Korea, Asia Subcontinent, Taiwan and the Americas.

On the tour, delegates will:

  • Learn more about U.S. Soy produced in the Northern Plains region of the U.S.
  • Gain a strong understanding of U.S. Soy logistics and infrastructure
  • Experience U.S. Soy export potential out of the Pacific Northwest
  • Hear directly from exporters and suppliers of U.S. Soy about how their Northern Plains operations and direct access to PNW are uniquely positioned to meet international soy demands.

Media are invited to attend an escorted tour of a local elevator and a farm in the Sioux Falls area. Phone interviews and professionally shot b-roll can be arranged for members of the media unable to attend the tour.
