USB Leaders Tout American Soybean Quality To European Customers

United Soybean Board leaders met recently with European buyers in Turkey. USB Vice Chair and Minnesota farmer Jim Call says that market is growing because of the great quality U.S. producers are able to provide and they fact the E.U. can rely on the U.S. getting product to them through an excellent transportation system over our competitors.

Call says U.S. growers are also able to surpass competing sellers because American soybeans have better protein and oil content. He says U.S. officials are also on the ground in Europe where customers can go with their questions and concerns.

He says the United States is also making headway getting more GMO soybeans to European customers who are now sourcing those.
