Washington, D.C.The U.S. Grains Council and the Renewable Fuels Association are pleased to announce dates for the Export Exchange 2012, an international trade conference focused on the export of U.S. coarse grains and co-products, including distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) and corn gluten. The conference and exhibition will be held Oct. 22-24, 2012, at the Minneapolis Marriott City Center. The Export Exchange is uniquely focused on connecting international buyers of U.S. coarse grains and DDGS with U.S. producers, suppliers and exporters. This event will bring together international buyers and end-users of U.S. DDGS and coarse grains with U.S. producers and agribusinesses. U.S. grain farmers and ethanol producers continue to reap benefits from last year’s highly successful meeting in Chicago. Sales negotiations were conducted at the conference and confidentiality was respected, yet one Taiwanese team announced a purchase of $2.6 million in DDGS at the conference. Further discussions and contacts also led to one of Morocco’s largest feed milling operations buying U.S. DDGS directly from a Midwestern ethanol plant. The plant representative ensured specific transportation for his buyer and since the initial transaction in October, the Moroccan company has purchased three additional vessels, each carrying 12,000-15,000 metric tons of U.S. DDGS. Purchases like these are a direct result of U.S. farmer-funded programs and events.“The Export Exchange series is an invaluable opportunity to foster greater understanding and establish new market opportunities for ethanol feed products,” said RFA President and CEO Bob Dinneen.Additional information regarding the Export Exchange 2012 will be posted at as it develops.

The U.S. Grains Council is a private, non-profit partnership of farmers and agribusinesses committed to building and expanding international markets for U.S. barley, corn, grain sorghum and their products. The Council is headquartered in Washington, D.C., and has 10 international offices that oversee programs in more than 50 countries. Financial support from our private industry members, including state checkoffs, agribusinesses, state entities and others, triggers federal matching funds from the USDA resulting in a combined program value of more than $28.3 million.
