IGP was established in 1978 by the Kansas Legislature. IGP's current mission is to provide technical assistance in promoting and exporting cereal grains and oilseeds and to assist with market-development efforts.
IGP achieves its mission through technical-training and assistance programs in storage and handling, milling, marketing and processing. These programs are targeted at international flour and feed millers, international grain buyers, overseas governmental officials and other public and private-sector parties involved in grain procurement and/or use.
IGP activities also extend beyond short courses to working with trade teams and visitors and facilitating overseas technical assistance.
