IGTC Objectives

The IGTC is a global organization that unites non-profit trade associations to produce timely and effective results in facilitating world trade.

The Association is a federation of non-profit organizations formed to serve the greater good by promoting and facilitating the performance of the supply chain for grains, oilseeds, pulses and derived products.  Aims include:

  • Support accomplishments toward world food security and economic well-being goals as defined by the United Nations.  
  • Inform and promote the common/shared interests of international actors that include farmers, producers, exporters, importers, governments and consumers.
  • Foster a safe, predictable, sustainable, affordable, nutritious and secure food supply across the world.
  • Share critical research and expertise on the global supply chain.  
  • Serve the diverse needs arising from international provision of food, feed, transport and processing for grains, oilseeds, pulses and derived products.

 IGTC achieves its purpose in cooperation with international organisations. The IGTC develops common positions on key issues impacting the global grain trade that are in line with IGTC’s strategic goals, communicating those positions through external advocacy, education and guidance to members and ultimately establishing more trade enabling policies among governments and international organisations.
