Japan plays a critical role in making the United States the leading soy exporter in the world. A delegation of U.S. soybean farmers will travel there to show their appreciation.

Representatives of the United Soybean Board (USB), the American Soybean Association (ASA) and the U.S. Soybean Export Council (USSEC) will honor the 50th anniversary of the Japan Oilseed Processors Association (JOPA). 

The organization, which represents 20 Japanese processors, continues to be an important ally for the U.S. soy industry. Last year, soy users in Japan represented the third-largest market for U.S. soy, importing more than 75 million bushels of whole soybeans. The U.S. group will visit the Showa Sangyo Crushing Plant and Grain Terminal, as well as the Higashi Nihon Feed Mill. Both are located at Kashima Port near Tokyo. 

PARTICIPANTS:

Vanessa Kummer, USB chair, North Dakota soybean farmer

Sharon Covert, USB International Marketing chair, USSEC board member, Illinois soybean farmer

Danny Murphy, ASA vice president, Mississippi soybean farmer
