"CGI focuses on the farm and has a real commitment to our community. Thank you for helping to grow our industry and opening global marketing opportunities. It is an exciting time to be a part of the growing pulse industry, and CGI is a region leader.”

"Producers really appreciate how hard we’ve been working here in the triangle on building relationships. We are working on bringing producers closer to Columbia Grain by being honest, working hard, and having options to move product in a timely manner. Having our agronomy department up and running is really helping to provide a full package deal to farmers/producers.”

"CGI is a well-capitalized multinational company that I can count on to honor their contracts and make payment for the commodity delivered. CGI services customers of all sizes. They can make markets, and when Mother Nature deals a difficult hand, CGI has the keen ability to find the ideal home for my product.”

"I admire the honesty and integrity of the people I work with there. I always feel comfortable dropping my grain off at CGI, knowing that I am going to get a fair price when I am ready to market my crop.”

"One thing I hear over and over is a sense of security the farmers feel when working with CGI. They do not worry about getting paid with us, we have their trust.”

We have a strong presence in the grain industry, led by an experienced management team.
