The U.S. Grains Council’s Mexico City office opened in 1982 with the purpose of serving one of the largest U.S. feed grain markets by providing consultations to importers. Eventually, the need of technology transfer for the livestock sector became evident shifting USGC/Mexico incorporated full time technicians to support all programs designed to accelerate the transfer.
As the livestock sector matured in Mexico, the office evolved accordingly by incorporating market intelligence programs. Today USGC/Mexico has a mix of market information and technical programs. These programs are supported by consultants who are charged with implementing USGC strategies to promote U.S. coarse grains and co-products.
The Mexico staff is comprised of Ryan LeGrand, director; Heidi Bringenberg, assistant director; Ana Livia Guerra, office manager and administrator; and Javier Chavez, marketing specialist.
In order to fulfill its mission of building markets for America's grains, the U.S. Grains Council operates 10 international offices as well as its headquarters in Washington, D.C. Please contact international staff in the Washington office first. Washington staff will know who is available to provide the best and quickest response to your questions.
