Wheat School: What is CIGI?

Have you heard of CIGI? Do you know what CIGI does?  Does the Canadian International Grain Institute make a difference for Canadian farmers and industry?  You bet!!!

I chatted with Earl Geddes the new Executive Director of CIGI about what CIGI does and how it tries to develop products and make markets for Canadian products.
