The largest US farm co-operative expands investments in South America
CHS, the largest US farm co-operative, is looking to expand investments in South America to boost its presence as a grain buyer and exporter in the booming soya sector.
According to Carl Casale, chief executive of CHS, the company is “looking at our Brazilian footprint right now in the deep interior in Cerrado or Mato Grosso to see what we need to build out from an origination standpoint there to be able to complement our position in southern Brazil and Argentina.
CHS is a major food exporter, a supplier of crop nutrients to farmers and food ingredients for manufacturers, and operates petroleum refineries and pipelines in the United States. HS was known as Cenex Harvest States Cooperatives until 2003.
The large cooperative with operations in North America, Argentina, Brazil, Australia and the Black Sea region, is expanding its capacity to provide grain and oil globally, due to the growing food demand in emerging markets.
Coupled with the fact that global demand will grow product of population growth and rising incomes, the future is promising. The role of the region requires a strong collaborative effort to harness the global stage. Europe increasingly reduces the production of meat and replaced it with imports. North America cannot overcome recurring health problems that prevent them from being the major supplier in the world. Oceania reached its production ceiling and completely failed to seize the other suppliers falls.
