CULTIVATING GROWTH

Our Mission is to cultivate high-quality ingredients from our local farmers to nourish the world, safely.

Here at Columbia Grain International (CGI), we are dedicated to cultivating the growth of the food supply chain in the northwestern region of the United States to ensure the world receives high-quality grains, pulses, oilseeds, and organics. 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. CGI provides trusted solutions for a farm-to-table philosophy that nourishes the world, safely.

CGI has spent the last 40 years developing a reliable, sustainable and traceable supply chain from our farmers to your customers.
