Company History: In 1998, Cenex merged with Harvest States Cooperatives to form Cenex Harvest States.

Successor/Parent History:
Cenex, originally the Farmers Union Central Exchange, was founded January 15 1931. Their first offices were in downtown St. Paul, Minn. Cenex was a reorganization of North Pacific Grain Growers, Inc. (NPGG). NPGG was organized as a regional cooperative, with 60 affiliated local cooperatives. NPGG's 17-member board of directors held its first meeting Dec. 19, 1929, at Lewiston, Idaho.

In 1998, Cenex merged with Harvest states to form Cenex and Harvest states, but was more commonly known as 'CHS'. In 2003, the combined firm formally changed its name from Cenex and Harvest States to CHS.

As of March 2017, CHS strives to grow opportunities for our cooperative and producer owners, as well as our energy, grains and food customers. Founded in 1929, CHS is a diversified farmer-owned Fortune 100 company that employs more than 12,500 people in 25 countries.

CHS ethanol plants manufacture the alcohol-based renewable fuel via an advanced fermenting and distilling process that efficiently converts corn into simple sugars. The resulting ethanol product is primarily used as a fuel that is commonly blended with gasoline to increase octane and improve emissions quality. Other ethanol benefits include:
  • Reducing harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Promoting North American energy independence.
  • Creating an alternative market for growers to sell their corn.
  • Providing consumers with a more economical fuel; on average more than $0.50/gallon cheaper than conventional gasoline.
A major byproduct of ethanol production is distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). DDGS are a high-protein animal feed that is in demand worldwide to supplement livestock diets.
