Message From The President

INTEGRITY. Since 1983 we’ve built our reputation on it.

A single trade can be executed anywhere but lasting relationships must be mutually beneficial and add increasing value over time. The traders at Seaboard understand markets, have a wealth of product knowledge, and are passionate about helping their partners make profitable decisions. But most importantly, they recognize and believe that building relationships through service, trust, and confidence is paramount to being a top performer for you.
Our traders succeed because they do what they say they’re going to do…every time. Many of our traders have been with Seaboard for over 20 years. Their experience and work ethic are passed along to each generation of new traders that enter our doors.
In addition to integrity and experience, Seaboard focuses resources in key trader support areas such as information technology so your trader can relay opportunities to you ahead of the competition. Our customers and suppliers realize this and respond with growing commitment each and every year.
I would like to thank our existing trading partners for your support over our first three decades. We look forward to continued growth and service to your business. If we’ve yet to become a trading partner, we’ll earn your respect and trust with each trade. I’m confident the opportunity will result in a long-term partnership that is unparalleled in our industry.

Seaboard International’s goal is to be your preferred long-term partner.
