24-07-2009 | |

Ethanol producer Poet LLC, and Perdue AgriBusiness, a wholly owned subsidiary of Perdue Inc., have announced the formation of a new partnership to promote and represent Poet’s Dakota Gold PBX premium distillers grains product line in domestic and international feed markets.

The partnership will advance POET Nutrition’s eastern US and international market growth. Perdue AgriBusiness will be POET’s sales agent in the Mid-Atlantic region and one of its representatives in international markets.

Perdue AgriBusiness will handle POET’s domestic sales through its extensive agricultural network and execute international sales through its export terminal in Virginia.

Dick Willey, President of Perdue AgriBusiness: “This opportunity to collaborate with POET enables us to work with not only an industry leader in the production of renewable fuels but also a company that shares our longstanding commitment to quality products and services,” adding that working with POET supports their growth strategy to expand our involvement with renewable fuels.

POET’s exclusive BPX technology, which eliminates the “cooking” process from ethanol production, provides a unique, high quality DDGS (Dakota Gold BPX).

“This alliance further illustrates how we can work in harmony to make a positive difference in today’s dynamic feed markets,” said Jeff Lautt, Executive Vice President at POET.
