US - Thirty-eight countries around the world have purchased US distiller’s dried grains with solubles (DDGS) as of August this year, and January-to-August totals show sales on the increase in 28 of those countries, reports the US Grains Council.

Despite the uncertainty surrounding China’s DDGS antidumping case, Chinese imports totaled almost 805,000 metric tons, making China the number two DDGS market for the period. Nearly 1.3 million tons in purchases, a 16 percent increase, moved Mexico into the number one position.

Filling out the top 10 purchasers are Canada (520,000 tons), Vietnam (307,000 tons), Japan (215,000 tons), South Korea (193,000 tons), Indonesia (172,000 tons), Thailand (152,000 tons), Israel (146,000 tons), and Ireland (140,000 tons).

Five countries posted triple-digit increases in DDGS sales during the eight months: United Kingdom, Spain, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Jordan and the increased sales to Spain and the U.K. helped the U.S. more than double its DDGS exports to the European Union (from 190,000 tons to 410,000 tons).
