International Distillers Grains Conference & Trade Show

logoThe International Distillers Grains Conference and Trade Show is set for 19-21 October in the Indianapolis Marriott Downtown.

It's sponsored by the U.S. Grains Council, which develops export markets for U.S. barley, corn, grain sorghum and related products. Founded in 1960, the Council is a private, non-profit corporation with nine international offices and programs in more than 50 countries.

Inside INdiana Business reports that Hoosier growers and the international buyers of their products will meet face-to-face this month, thanks to a series of tours and farm visits organized through regional cooperative Co-Alliance LLP.

The three-day tour event welcomes dozens of grain buyers, company representatives and government officials from Korea, Taiwan and several North African nations, and provides them with a closer look at American agriculture. The group will already be in Indiana to attend the U.S. Grains Council’s International DDG Conference in Indianapolis. (DDG = U.S. corn and distiller’s dried grains)
