John Crabtree, NCI Assistant Director, explains the grain shipping system in the United States to a food-grade soybean trade team that visited NCI Wednesday. They were hosted by the North Dakota Trade Office, in conjunction with the Northern Food Grade Soybean Association. The delegation consisted of seven value-added food buyers and three American Soybean Association officers from Indonesia, Singapore and Thailand. The Southeast Asian visitors are soy-food producers interested in purchasing high-quality, food-grand Red River Valley soybeans. The Southeast Asia Reverse Trade Mission concluded Thursday. The team also attended Big Iron in West Fargo, during their time in Fargo.
