Washington, DC – The Corn Refiners Association commends the U.S. Senate’s bipartisan passage of the Trade Priorities and Accountability Act of 2015. Trade promotion authority is instrumental to move market access negotiations forward, and the Senate’s timely action represents a critical step toward increased opportunities for American businesses, including the corn refining industry. The Corn Refiners Association urges the House of Representatives to pass the bill as soon as possible.
The Corn Refiners Association (CRA) is the national trade association representing the corn refining industry of the United States. CRA and its predecessors have served this important segment of American agribusiness since 1913. Corn refiners manufacture sweeteners, ethanol, starch, bioproducts, corn oil and feed products from corn components such as starch, oil, protein and fiber.
