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: Nov 29-Dec 5

The Tri-State Grain Growers Convention is being held in Spokane, WA this week. Janice is attending this event as usual. At WMC, the team will be working on some baking projects, including fine-tuning the heat-treated flour for the sponge cake study. Later in the week, we will have a holiday bake-off and staff lunch.

News and Updates

December Message from Janice

By now, many of you have heard the news that the search has begun for my successor. I plan to return home to California when the transition is complete, sometime in 2022. WMC Chair Bill Flory recently update the board and our stakeholders on the search process: “WMC has engaged with HR Partners to help manage the process. HR Partners (HRP) is a nationwide human resources consulting firm located in Topeka Kansas…. Application submission will open on January 3 and close January 21. The selection committee will then review the applicants and establish a pool of qualified individuals for initial interviews. We will conduct in person interviews with the final candidates in early March.” We encourage potential applicants to check our website in early January for more information.

On behalf of the entire WMC team, I wish all our friends a happy and safe holiday season. We will be here except for December 24 and 31, wrapping up research projects and preparing for the busy year to come.
