United Grain Corporation (UGC) is a bulk grain export company located in Vancouver, Washington USA.  Formed in 1969, UGC quickly established itself as a premier wheat export company delivering high quality products to customers overseas and superior services to suppliers across the Pacific Northwest.

The increase in world population coupled with the shift of food demand towards a more protein rich diet, propelled UGC to expand operations to include the handling of feed grains and oilseeds.  In 2011 UGC embarked in a supply chain expansion to both inland and export terminals in order to accommodate an array of bulk product offerings: wheat, feed grains, and oilseeds.

Today our Vancouver Export Terminal (VET) boasts the largest storage capacity on the US West Coast at 220,000 metric tons (8 million bushels) with an annual handling capacity of 5 million tons.
