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: November 18th

Bon and Ling had successful conferences in Asia; they will return later this week. The balance of the staff will focus on catching up after travel (Janice), lab services, and proprietary research projects.

Partner of the Month: November 2019

This month we recognize the team behind the annual Crop Quality Seminars taking place in Asia. USW organizes teams comprised of quality experts, farmers, grain traders, and USW market development personnel to present the new crop outlook to customers in Asian countries including Indonesia, Thailand, Philippines, Korea, Taiwan, China, and Japan. The tours are split between North and South Asia. This year, WMC staff join the teams in North Asia (Bon Lee) and China (Lingzhu Deng.) Although numbers of participants vary from year to year, usually over 850 buyers will attend day-long seminars, representing close to 50 percent of all US wheat exports. We thank USW for organizing these tours and applaud the participants for their contributions.
