WASHINGTON, DC -- John Morgan, a vice president of Supreme Rice Mill in Crowley, Louisiana, has been appointed to serve a second two-year term on the U.S. Department of Agriculture Federal Grain Inspection Service’s (FGIS) Grain Inspection Advisory Committee.  Morgan previously served on the committee from 2018-2020.

Morgan is the long-serving chair of the USA Rice Millers’ Association Industry Standards Committee, the main point of contact between the U.S. rice industry and USDA on rice standards and technical issues related to rice milling.

The Grain Inspection Advisory Committee advises FGIS on the programs and services it delivers under the U.S. Grain Standards Act.  The Committee represents all segments of the grain industry, including grain producers, processors, merchandisers, handlers, exporters, consumers, grain inspection agencies, and scientists.

“With his years of experience and industry knowledge, John is an incredible asset to the advisory committee and we’re glad to see USDA has again selected him to serve in this role,” said Peter Bachmann, USA Rice vice president of policy and government affairs.  “John has represented us well on this committee and we can rest assured that the rice industry’s concerns and priorities on grain standards will be effectively communicated to USDA.”
