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
We completed the reorganization of the analytical lab to make room for new equipment. Thanks to Chopin Technologies for lending WMC the new Amylab FN, to measure falling numbers, and an upgraded Mixolab 2. WMC will utilize both devices in quality testing and research in the coming months.
Partner of the Month
We recognize the USW/ Manila Office as our special April partner and thank Regional Vice President Joe Sowers and Baking Consultant Gerry Mendoza for bringing a great team of millers to WMC to work on cake formulations. In July, WMC Technical Director will visit Manila to visit customers together with the USW staff. We look forward to closer collaboration with the USW/ Manila Office on additional activities in the coming years.
