Chicago’s International Agribusiness Influence

Chicago, Illinois, is a global center of influence for agricultural business. The Illinois Soybean Association checkoff program participates even more actively with an office in downtown Chicago. And stakeholders in the soybean industry worldwide have many reasons to visit.

“While Illinois has been an attractive destination to international trade teams for several years, we’ve seen an increase in requests from those teams to visit our Chicago office specifically,” says David Headley, trade team lead for the Illinois Soybean Association. “It’s easy for them to travel to us considering Chicago has two international airports and a multitude of train options.”
