Feed Ingredient Buyers Mission at World Pork Expo

Wednesday, June 5 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm • Organized By Iowa Economic Development Authority (IEDA) - International Trade Office


Feed Ingredient Buyers Mission at World Pork Expo 
The International Trade Office of IEDA and Food Export Association of the Midwest are partnering to bring international feed buyers to Iowa. This year’s Feed Ingredients Buyers Mission will bring feed ingredient buyers from China, Colombia, New Zealand, South Korea, and Vietnam to Des Moines, IA for one-on-one business meetings. Meetings will be held Wed, June 5 in conjunction with the 2019 World Pork Expo in Des Moines.

Demand for animal-based protein is growing worldwide. As countries expand their livestock industry to meet this demand, they are looking for feed ingredient suppliers.  This is a low-cost method to meet, one-on-one, with feed ingredient buyers from around the world in one place!

All Iowa suppliers are invited to meet the international buyers and promote your products without leaving the U.S. The buyers are pre-screened, qualified and interested in U.S. products from the Midwest.  This is your chance to develop and expand your business with international buyers who have expressed an interest in a variety of U.S. products including: by-pass proteins, feed ingredients, hay products, meat and bone meal, milk replacers, pet food, pro-biotics, supplements and yeast.

These are all new buyers! Buyer profiles as well as registration is available at An early registration discount applies before April 12.  Registration ends May 3.
