  • There has been a tentative agreement in the 18-month dispute between the International Longshore and Warehouse Union and the Pacific Northwest Grain Companies.Washington Governor Jay Inslee released a statement yesterday and said, “United Grain Company has been notified that state grain inspectors will resume inspections immediately. This is outstanding news for grain growers across Washington, for our grain customers overseas, and for the hundreds of ILWU workers who will now be back on the job.”
  • A sugar industry analyst suggests Millenials are eating less sugar than older generations.Analyst Todd Hale made those comments during the American Sugar Alliance’s annual International Sweetener Symposium last week.

    Described as those born between 1977 and 1994, Millenials will outnumber the baby boomer generation by 10 million people in 2020. Hale notes Millenials spend only $18 per year on sugar and sugar substitutes, compared to Baby Boomers spending $24.
