CERRO GORDO, ILLINOIS, U.S. — Clarkson Grain Co. recently introduced an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) for its employees, a plan that gives employees part ownership in the company while providing an investment benefit to help the employees achieve their retirement goals.

The program was adopted in January, 2016, and the ESOP stock transaction occurred later in that year.

“We are very pleased to bring the ESOP benefit to our valued employees,” said Lynn Clarkson, founder and owner of Clarkson. “We believe they are key to our success, and together, we strive to serve our customers and growers with the highest level of service. The ESOP program is our way of saying thank you to our hard-working dedicated employees so they may share in our company’s success. We can proudly say that Clarkson Grain is now family-owned and employee-owned.”

Clarkson supplies grains, oilseeds and ingredients to the food manufacturing and animal feed industries. The company specializes in the growing, storage and processing of identity-preserved, Non-GMO, certified organic and certified transitional corn, soybeans and soy ingredients.
