The U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) is excited about new opportunities to build market access for U.S. soy.

“2021 was a milestone year for U.S. soy,” said USSEC CEO Jim Sutter during a press conference at Commodity Classic last week. “We reached both a crop production and an overall export record.”

Sutter, along with USSEC VP of Market Intelligence Mac Marshall and new board chairman Doug Winter, talked about the potential for opening up new markets, and what exports mean for soybean farmers.

“Our board is looking forward to building on the immense achievements in recent years,” said Winter, a farmer from Mill Sholas, IL. “And I am energized about collaborating with USSEC’s global team to enable companies to experience the full value of U.S. Soy for human consumption, aquaculture, and livestock feed in more than 80 countries around the world.”

Winter and the rest of the 2022-2023 USSEC Board of Directors were seated during the organization’s annual meeting in New Orleans last week during Commodity Classic.
