Our legacy is rooted in consistency, quality, and reliability of supply. We are the bridge between the producer and consumer, supported by over 40 years of experience.
As a vertically-integrated company, we operate assets, including grain elevators, processing plants, and agronomy centers, which stretch across the northern tier of the United States. We’ve developed partnerships with over 8,000 farmers to fulfill crop demands from our customers who require superior food products, which are then purchased by consumers worldwide.
