A delegation of Taiwanese feed manufacturers and merchandisers visited Midwest AgEnergy’s Dakota Spirit bio refinery at Spiritwood Wednesday, October 17, 2018. They were guests of the US Grains Council, the ND Corn Utilization Council and the ND Corn Growers Association. They were accompanied by Dr. Yao-Ching Hsieh, a Director of Taiwan’s Council of Agriculture, and Michael Lu, Director of US Grains Council’s Taiwan Office.
Taiwan is an important trade counterparty for US feed grains and DDGS. The delegation expressed their preference for high quality feed ingredients and especially noted their concern over mycotoxins such as aflatoxin and DON (vomitoxin) in feeds and raw materials. They were happy to note the low incidence of these toxins in ND corn and are very interested in our high quality DDGS product.
Thanks to ND Corn and the US Grains Council for showcasing Midwest AgEnergy as they continue to build relationships with our international friends!
