Key Programs and Services

The Wheat Marketing Center (WMC) exists on 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: July 8-14

This week WMC’s Executive Director Mike Moran travels to Oklahoma City, Oklahoma for the U.S. Wheat Associates Summer Board Meeting. The summer meeting provides opportunities for the industry to meet and discuss topics impacting the wheat industry on a national and global level. On Tuesday of this week, the Montana FFA group returns for their annual tour of WMC and its live demonstrations. Their educational experience includes cracker and noodle line demonstrations in the Innovation Lab, a hands-on tortilla press activity in the Bake Lab, and live demonstrations of the Falling Number test and Extensograph in the Analytical Lab.
