The North American Export Grain Association, Inc. (NAEGA) was chartered in 1912 and incorporated as a not-for-profit organization in the state of New York in 1920. NAEGA works to promote and sustain the development of the export trade from the United States of grains, oilseeds and primary products processed there from. NAEGA consists of private and publicly owned companies and farmer-owned cooperatives that are involved in and provide services to the bulk grain and oilseed exporting industry. NAEGA’s mission is to promote and sustain the development of commercial export of grain and oilseed and their primary products. Through a reliance on member action and support, NAEGA acts to accomplish this mission from its office in Washington D.C., and in markets throughout the world.
