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: March 20-26

This week Wheat Marketing Center, WMC Laboratory Services, Inc., and WMC Title Holding Company hold their annual meetings and board elections.

Partner Spotlight: WMC Board Committees

This month we highlight the important relationship we have with the state wheat and grain commissions that provide WMC with both financial support and governance.

The eight supporting member states provide over fifty percent of our core funding. Each state is represented by a state commissioner on the WMC board of directors, providing governance and strategic direction for the organization. An important part of that support is the board committees. The committees consist of:

  • Executive Committee
  • Finance & Audit Committee
  • Governance Committee
  • Human Resources Committee
  • Marketing Committee

Committee members represent the perspectives of growers, millers, trade specialists, transportation and shipping, educational institutions, and these individuals provide diverse and valuable insights that ensure WMC continues to provide relevant and innovative research and education to the industry. In addition to their committee duties, the state commission members contribute their personal time, making connections for WMC throughout the industry and as ambassadors of our mission. This network of board and commission members is a vital part of who WMC is and a testament to the value we provide. Wheat Marketing Center is grateful for the leadership and dedication of our board and the state commissions that provide the foundation for the work we do.
