About Us

The Agribusiness Council of Indiana (ACI) has deep roots in Indiana’s agribusiness community. Formed in 2001, ACI brings together two longstanding agribusiness associations: the Indiana Grain and Feed Association (formed in 1902) and the Indiana Plant Food and Agricultural Chemicals Association (formed in 1966). Today, ACI has approximately 450 member companies spanning the Midwestern grain, feed, fertilizer and ag chemical industries.

The Agribusiness Council of Indiana Board of Directors developed a vision, mission and set of values, setting a direction for the organization. The board then determined the following strategic priorities as specific action areas required to align with the vision of the organization.
