Key Programs and Services

The Wheat Marketing Center (WMC) is one of the technical crossroads of the international wheat industry, providing technical training and grower workshops, innovative research, product development, and crop quality testing services. WMC focuses on promoting U.S. wheat by demonstrating its quality and functionality in Asian noodles, crackers and biscuits, tortillas and flatbread, and other baked products. Pilot scale production lines (pictured above), state-of-the-art quality testing equipment, and rich technical expertise provide great value to our state wheat commission partners, wheat industry stakeholders, and millers and food manufacturers around the world.

This Week at WMC

WMC will participate in a project with the Japan Flour Milling Association to compare Western White Wheat quality evaluation. Bon will join the team of Japanese millers in Pullman for sponge cake making and evaluation at the Western Wheat Quality Lab. The group will visit WMC on Wednesday and Thursday and observe the sponge cake process here. Also next week, a researcher from Oklahoma State University will spend a few days at WMC to receive training on the GlutoPeak machine. As always, check out our full schedule of courses and workshops here.

Partner of the Month

This month, we recognize our Board of Directors — current, incoming and retiring – and thank them for their dedication to the Wheat Marketing Center. Our board members take time out of their busy schedules to participate in committee meetings and biannual board meetings and to provide leadership and expertise to the organization. WMC staff are grateful for our board members and look forward to the next meeting on March 28. An updated board list will be made available after the meeting.
