Beneficial Relationships

Domestic and international markets are important to maintain profitable prices and manageable grain storage volumes from year to year. CCPC has forged important relationships with organizations who have the resources to maintain, expand, and develop on-shore and off-shore market opportunities. Here is a brief look at those organizations.

U.S. Grains Council

U.S. Grains Council (USGC) builds demand for U.S. corn and corn products like ethanol and DDGS in countries across the world. The Council’s offices around the world not only facilitate the sale of U.S. corn exports, but also educate buyers and create market demand for our product.

U.S. Meat Export Federation

The U.S. Meat Export Federation (USMEF) builds international markets for red meat, which equates to bushels of grain exported in the form of protein. In fact, a study on the value of red meat exports in 2018 showed beef and pork exports used a combined total of nearly 14.9 million tons of corn and DDGS. Since the study conducted in 2015, one in every four bushels of added feed demand for corn is due to beef and pork exports.

In the last decade, CCPC and USMEF have focused on projects to build meat demand in Japan, Korea, Taiwan, and the Caribbean. These projects have varied from retail and consumer promotions to cutting, grading and buyer training programs.
