Cotton Council International
Cotton Council International is the export promotion arm of the National Cotton Council of America. CCI's mission is to increase exports of U.S. cotton, cottonseed and U.S. manufactured cotton products through activities that affect every phase of the marketing chain — from the initial mill buyer of cotton fiber or purchaser of U.S. cotton-rich yarns and fabrics on through to the final consumer. Representing the export promotion interests of the U.S. cotton industry’s seven segments—producers, ginners, warehousers, merchants, cottonseed handlers, cooperatives and manufacturers—CCI operates in 50 overseas markets. The banner for CCI’s work is the COTTON USA Mark, which identifies and distinguishes quality products manufactured with a high content of U.S. cotton.
