The Soy Excellence Center of the Americas is the regional hub for knowledge exchange and growth for professionals who take pride in providing soy as a sustainable source of high-quality protein. The center uniquely combines agricultural expertise, market opportunities and networking and connections.

We offer programs for employees in poultry, feed manufacturing, aquaculture, and swine.

Our aim is to:

  • Teach participants using curriculum-based learning
  • Connect participants with industry experts across the agri-food value chain
  • Follow a certification process to ensure participants are well trained and leave with an accredited certificate
  • Promote continuous learning, even after the certification process is complete
