USSEC is headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, the heart of the U.S. “corn-belt”, through a global network of international offices and strong support in the U.S., we help create and sustain demand for U.S. soybeans and soybean products, advocate for the use of soy in feed, aquaculture and human consumption, promote the benefits of soy use through education and connect industry leaders through a robust membership program.

Since the establishment of Beijing representative office in 1982, the U.S. soybean industry organizations have long been servicing China’s agricultural economy by working closely with the Chinese agricultural industry. USSEC China staff has provided free technical and trade services through numerous activities including seminars, workshops, trainings, animal feeding trials, on-site consultations, teams as well as publications to Chinese livestock and aquaculture, feed, soy processing and trade industries to help them improve productivity and production efficiency and have been making valuable contributions to address sustainable food security issues in China.

While presenting various technical and marketing activities to help to increase productivity and profitability of the Chinese agricultural industry, USSEC has also been making efforts in promoting safe feed, safe food and safe production through different activities since 2000, which have enhanced the industry’s awareness of food safety, encouraged and helped food enterprises produce safe and healthy food for the benefits of Chinese consumers.

USSEC has been conducting numerous feeding trials and demonstrations with Chinese partners to introduce the use of advanced and innovative production technologies in livestock and aquaculture industries. These activities have helped to increase the productivity and efficiency, and the sustainable and environment-friendly innovations introduced in agricultural production have further promoted the sustainable development of the agricultural economy to supply the increasing need for quality, safe and healthy foods for the Chinese community.

USSEC’s technical and market services have been provided by its technical directors and staff based in China, and outstanding foreign scientists, researchers and market consultants. These activities have been receiving financial support from the United Soybean Board, Soybean Research & Promotion Boards in soybean-producing states, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

USSEC’s technical publications cover a wide range of issues related to the scientific utilization of soy products for livestock husbandry, poultry, aquaculture and feedstuffs, as well as feed quality control, production management and animal nutrition and health, most of which can also be available on the USSEC website:
