The U.S. Wheat Store is Always Open
U.S. wheat farmers produce a plentiful wheat crop each year allowing the United States to be the largest single exporter of wheat in the world. People around the world rely on the United States and a handful of other countries to supply the basic ingredient for their traditional wheat-based foods.
While world wheat trade is largely a commercial market, buyers expect wheat to be available when needed. The U.S. wheat industry recognizes that this social contract exists and has invested much to earn the reputation as the world’s most reliable choice.

The U.S. is the world's largest wheat exporter, but U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) does not buy nor sell U.S. wheat. This market strength confers a responsibility on the U.S. wheat industry, and USW's commitment to helping customers get the wheat they want at the best value possible is second-to-none.
It is strongly encouraged that U.S. wheat buyers make their first point of contact with a local USW office. Our representatives, some with more than 30 years of relevant experience, are prepared to help buyers before, during, and after the sale. Click here to find the USW office nearest you.
