The Northern Crops Institute (NCI) recently hired Brian Sorenson for program manager. In his new role, Brian will use his background in cereal chemistry, grain milling and grain quality to provide organization and leadership in the development of educational programs to promote northern grown crops to global grain buyers and food processors.
