JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Missouri Corn, in cooperation with the U.S. Grains Council and U.S. Embassy in Tokyo, recently hosted a team of Japanese regulators involved in the food, feed, and environmental approvals of biotech corn events. While in Missouri, the group visited Bayer headquarters in Chesterfield, ADM St. Louis grain terminal, and the farm of MCGA President Mark Scott near Wentzville.
These meetings allowed Japanese officials to see how their regulatory approvals need to be able to work with U.S. corn production, distribution, and exports system. These visits are crucial to keeping the Japanese market open and functioning. Communication and building relationships are key to continuing the partnership between U.S. corn farmers and Japan, one of our most long-lasting and important markets.
