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.

Partner of the Month: June 2019
This month we recognize USW/Mexico and USW/China for all their efforts to promote US wheat exports in a challenging trade environment. The Mexico Wheat Trade Conference, being held in early June, recognizes the importance of Mexico as a top customer and examines various issues affecting the trade relationship. Wheat exports to China have been interrupted by the imposition of tariffs by both countries, but USW/China maintains relationships with key customers in anticipation of resolving the dispute. The Contracting for Wheat Value Workshop, being held at WMC in early June, is one example of these efforts.
