The following is a press release from the U.S. Grains Council:
The U.S. Grains Council is strengthening staff resources to deal with evolving world biotechnology issues, according to Rebecca Bratter, USGC vice president of international operations.
The Council has created a new manager of biotechnology position, reporting to Bratter, at its headquarters staff, and Andrew S. Conner has been named to the post.
“Our members are keenly aware of both the complexity and critical importance of the work we are doing in this area,” said Bratter. “Our successes to date have kept markets open for U.S. grains and grain products, but our job is far from done.”
She noted that the need to work with industry partners, grain producers and overseas customers on biotech issues continues to expand as new concerns, issues and barriers arise.
Conner, a graduate of Middlebury College, brings experience researching legislative and regulatory issues and a Spanish language background to the new position.
