"Our history of putting our customers' best interests first is something we're very proud of and that will never change," said Scott Cordes, president, Country Hedging. "But we thought it was time to amplify the financial strength and integrity of our parent company, CHS Inc., through our name, as well."
CHS Hedging Inc. remains a wholly owned subsidiary of CHS Inc. It also retains its own status as a separate cooperative, with the opportunity to disperse patronage to qualifying customer-owners.
"We remain committed to helping our customers grow by guiding them toward the right decisions for the right reasons," Cordes said. "Our name is new, but our experience bringing actionable market intelligence and insight to the table is built on nearly three decades of deep agricultural experience. That will never change."
