“"Being included in the NIOP organization has been beyond mine and Columbus' dreams. Just being a part of an organization that unifies and supports the industry we are all in, validates what we have been working so hard and long for. I mean this has been a very long road! We are excited as you are to be part of NIOP."”

Paulette Gagliardo, President, Columbus Vegetable Oils

“The NIOP's 2020 Introduction to the Oilseed Industry Training was well set up, despite being virtual due to the current circumstances. It was complete, straightforward to understand and the level of knowledge of the presenters was very high.

I highly recommend it to anyone in the industry, especially to my colleagues from Latin America, who are waiting for upskilling in this work area and easily understand the US's oilseed industry”.

Jose Roberto Montenegro, President, Tropical Oil Division, AgroAmerica

“NIOP provides a platform for all edible fats & oil industry players to assemble together to network, build relationships, execute business and learn about industry trends. The conference is always diverse in the attendee base, as far upstream as producers to downstream as consumers, which adds to the breadth and depth of quality provided.”

Sandra Hulm, Conagra Brands

NIOP, since my first conference in the early 70's, has always been a source of information and knowledge. There are many attending with a wealth of knowledge. I always leave these meetings with a new bit of information, and nowhere else will you find it!
