Keen Interest in Technology, Strong Business Sense &
Passion for Ag Drive Snake River Sugar’s Chairman
Duane Grant is Snake River Sugar Company’s second chairman, succeeding Terry Ketterling of Mountain Home, Idaho, who served in that capacity from 1996 (the year SRSC was established) until 2009. Grant joined the SRSC board in 2003, so he had an inside familiarity with the cooperative’s workings prior to taking over the chairmanship. Still, he admits to seeing some things in a new light since becoming chairman.
