exports of U.S.-grown cotton to buyers around the world. Customers

the supply chain to promote sales of U.S. cotton-rich products.
The COTTON USA Supply Chain Marketing (SCM) initiative was
created to directly influence trade flows at all levels of the marketing
chain from the spinner to the retailer and consumer. CCI works with
retailer and brand buyers of textile, apparel and home textile products

For cotton spinning mills, the U.S. industry supplies information on the
quality of U.S. cotton and the world cotton market situation. CCI hosts trade
missions and cotton summits that bring together the leadership of the U.S.
raw cotton industry and the leadership of textile consumers from around
the world. COTTON USA qualified fabric mills can take advantage of the
COTTONWORKS® Fabric Library, a unique sourcing tool for worldwide

initiative. CCI can help you identify quality suppliers of COTTON USA
qualified fabrics, and also assist in building long-term relationships with
customers interested in U.S. cotton-rich final products. Manufacturers can
also take advantage of color and fashion forecasting services and technical
