Cuba a Potential Market for North Dakota Wheat

Cuba a Potential Market for North Dakota Wheat
By KX News Today at 3:45 a.m.

Not long ago– an American stepping on to Cuban soil was unheard of.

Now– future trade opportunities are being discussed.
North Dakota Grain Growers Association President, Mark Formo paid a
visit to the communist country to explore the possibility of trade in
years to come.

North Dakota Agriculture Commissioner– Doug Goehring also went on the trip.

They met with Cuban policy officials and visited local farms.

Formo says the trade possibility makes Cuba a big potential market for
North Dakota Wheat.

He says Cuba doesn’t really grow much wheat but does import a lot of it
from other counties.

“They are importing a lot of wheat already so we would have to prove
that our wheat is better and then bring that in. They do have mills so
they can mill their own flour so there’s a lot of things that they could
use. It all depends on how much they would use,” says Mark Formo,
President of the North Dakota Grain Growers Association.

Formo says this wheat trade could potentially bring in $40 million
annually for North Dakota agriculture.
