Meet the team

igrain offers more than just tecknology.

At igrain we believe growers and buyers still value talking to someone to discuss marketing options and to know that they are supported through the negotiation, contracting and execution processes. Being that independent voice between the buyer and seller allows igrain to provide objective, impartial options to our clients. Our team of account managers live and breathe grain markets and market engagement options. Please call us to discuss your options.
