The collaboration between the United States Soybean Export Council (USSEC) and the IGP Institute provided education and training to Latin American professionals about current risk management practices.

IGP curriculum manager Carlos Campabadal led the course in several lectures with the help of guest presenters. The relationship between the IGP Institute and USSEC provides skills for mitigating the risk during grain purchasing is highlighted in this training.

Course participant Angela Maria Ayora a general manager for egg production companies in Colombia saw this firsthand.

“It was a great opportunity for me,”Ms  Ayora says. “I decided to take advantage of it and to get all the information that I can so I can figure out how to apply it to the six companies I represent and in my daily job responsibilities.”

Fellow course participant Juan Esteban Mejia, a farm manager also from Colombia, says that he hopes to put the techniques he has learned here at the IGP Institute to use when he returns home.

“It would be good for our companies in Colombia to learn from this training and explore the possibility of not taking on so much risk,” Mejia says.

“Right now we are always in the market. It has been beneficial to see how the whole network works.”

This is just one example of the partnership trainings offered by the IGP Institute.

IGP also offers training in grain processing and flour milling, grain purchasing, and feed manufacturing and grain quality management.
