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 30th

We are picking up the pace again this week with webinars and videoconferences on several topics including regenerative agriculture, WMC/FIC collaboration, cracker line maintenance, the national checkoff for millers and bakers, and insurance renewal. Janice will attend the Oregon Wheat Commission meeting virtually (instead of the planned Tri-State Convention.)
