3. Industry Growth Relies on Untapped Markets

“If we don’t find overseas markets for our products, many farmers, many producers, go out of business.”

This assessment will provide a comprehensive overview and analysis of the Brazilian market for U.S. exports of feed additives and feed ingredients, excluding raw agricultural commodities (e.g., corn, soybeans, sorghum, etc.).
