Wisconsin Hosts International Ethanol Customers
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 06/04/2018

About a dozen industry and government officials from Asia and Oceania have recently completed a trade mission to the Midwest, where they spent some time talking with Wisconsin corn growers. The group took a two-day tour following the U.S. Grains Council's Ethanol Summit of the Asia Pacific in Minneapolis.

The summit highlighted the use of ethanol in transportation fuels to help meet challenges, including improving air quality, upgrading the current fuel supply and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

"We are proud to welcome our trade partners from around the world to come here and learn about our agriculture industry and the many products we have to offer," said Wisconsin Corn Growers President Doug Rebout. "It is important that we take this opportunity to invite international partners to our farms and agribusinesses to show them the passion we have and the quality products we produce. We want to thank this trade group and the U.S. Grain Council for letting Wisconsin Corn be a part of this important tour."

During their Wisconsin visits, representatives from Pakistan, Myanmar, Australia and New Zealand toured Ace Ethanol, Eron Beef LLC, a Kwik Trip blending facility, Hartmann Farms and Roger Rebout & Sons Farm.
