Consolidated Grain and Barge Co. (CGB), a leader in the grain and transportation industries since 1969, announces its acquisition of the food-grade soybean division of Quality Technology International, Inc. (QTI).
QTI provides natural gut health products for conventional, organic and ABF production.
The new food-grade soybean business will trade, ship and sell specialty food soybeans via container to Japan, and domestically for processing and resale to Japanese food manufacturers. Common food uses for these soybeans are Japanese staples including tofu, miso and natto.
“CGB is well experienced in the Identity Preserved (IP) and specialty grain markets," says Eric Kresin, general manager, Market Development. "This new business fits perfectly into our Market Development group as we work to expand in the food and consumer areas for non-GMO, specialty, and organic areas."
