MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA, U.S. — The Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit and the Organic & Non-GMO Forum announced on May 12 that both events will be co-located. The events will be Nov. 14-16, 2016.

The 11th annual Oilseed & Grain Trade Summit is a forum for all participants across the oilseed, grain and feed value chain – from buyers, traders and merchandisers to processors and providers of transportation/logistics services. Discussions will be laser-focused on what new developments have arisen, such as emerging market opportunities for exports to Cuba, or prospects from increased competition on exports from Brazil and Argentina. Similarly, conversations that are fundamental to engagement in the sector, such as outlook projections, strategies for risk management, and insight on the near-term impacts of weather on agriculture, will be more closely examined.

The 2nd annual Organic & Non-GMO Forum, which was expanded this year after a successful inaugural year, will focus on the development of supply chains and other business opportunities in the sector. Leading experts will provide both overviews and deep-dives into the most relevant issues facing the sector, including S&D forecasting and the impact of evolving policies. Examples of these interactive presentations and panel discussions include:

GMO Labeling: The Impact of Current Programs and Legislative Initiatives

Understanding the Short and Long-term Costs of Organic, Non-GMO and Conventional Systems

Understanding the Supply Gap for U.S. Organic and Non-GMO

Trends in Organic & Non-GMO Dairy, Livestock and Poultry Production
