WASHINGTON, D.C., U.S. — The U.S. Grains Council (USGC) has planned DDGS and corn gluten buyers conference on Oct. 18-21 in Panama City, Panama, and Nov. 12-14 in Geneva, Switzerland.

These events will focus on buyers and will include specific themes geared for trade servicing and networking. Topics to be addressed include a current industry overview and product profiles, transportation, product management and actual value of the product for end-users. These two conferences provide a prime venue for U.S. DDGS producers and suppliers to meet some of the top importers and largest end-users of U.S. DDGS in Latin America in the Panama event and in the case of Geneva this venue is geared to businesses within the North Africa and Middle East countries, USGC said.

The council has been actively promoting DDGS in these regions. While the U.S. has experienced significant growth of DDGS exports to these markets, all indications point toward continued growth.
