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: September 21st

We have a busy week planned at WMC, with highlights as follows: Ling and Paige will make steamed bread and noodles with composites of hard white wheat for the USW CQ report; Bon and his team will continue working on soft white and club wheat composites. Janice and Jayne will attend the Oregon Wheat Commission meeting (via Zoom) and provide updates on CQ and the chlorination research project. Bon will update Chinese customers on soft white quality on a USW webinar. And the WMC Lab Services board will meet to review FY 2019/20 financials and discuss current activity.
