SB&B Growers

Our Grower Relations Team

American farmers are very important supply chain partners to SB&B. We believe that honesty, integrity, respect and fairness foster our relationships to ensure sustainable operations. For multiple generations, SB&B has been connecting the global marketplace with the farmer’s food production. SB&B does not speculate the food market, we only contract what we sell.

Expanding across the upper Midwest, we deliver a diverse genetic lineup that will handle many soil types, disease pressures and maturity ranges. We strive in the opportunity to place the right genetics that fits your ground profile to ensure maximum profitability. We capitalize on providing farmers an opportunity to understand where their food production is going and get paid fairly for the quality they produce


Year after year, you head into spring with the same rotation: planting corn and soybeans. But what if
there was a way to diversify and turn a larger profit, while continuing to do what you know and love? It
may be time to consider adding food-grade soybeans into your operation. Food-grade soybeans are
specific varieties selected for characteristics ideal for the production of tofu, natto, soy milk, and other
soy foods.

Here are 3 reasons why you should consider joining us in the food-grade movement:
SB&B works hard to maintain top-notch traceability methods that allow their growers to
pinpoint each step in the supply process, further increasing the value of the product.
The premium payments for food-grade soybeans is a direct reflection of the demand for these
unique varieties. Consumers are willing to pay a higher price for enhanced-quality soybeans, and
soybean handlers are willing to pass that along to the farmers.
Food grade soybeans are a high-end quality crop and that alone is pride worthy. When it comes
to marketing soybeans, there are numerous opportunities available, but none quite like knowing
your product is making an actual difference in someone’s life - and on their dinner plate.
SB&B offers contracts that work within your current business operation and is fully invested in bringing
your food-grade soybeans to market.
