About

Michigan Agricultural Commodities (MAC) is a privately held, for-profit corporation, which buys, sells and stores agricultural commodities throughout the United States and Canada. Today, MAC is Michigan’s largest grain handler with 7 elevators, almost 43 million bushels of storage and around 100 employees. Facility ownership, trading offices and international connections give MAC uncommon flexibility with unique opportunities. MAC also offers direct ship opportunities, agronomy services, dry bean processing, and identity preserved soybean programs. We offer these advantages while remaining small enough for you to talk to – and know you’ll be heard!
