The NDTO Service to Exporters Award is an accolade given to one organization which demonstrates exceptional commitment to supporting North Dakota exporters and increasing the state’s international business.
The award was accepted by John Crabtree, NCI Assistant Director.
Mark Weber, NCI Director, comments, “Since Northern Crops Institute opened its doors in 1983, we have been blessed with an outstanding staff.
