As wheat consumption increases, USW
is helping commercial milling, baking and food companies in Guatemala reduce
costs and improve quality using U.S. wheat. As a result, Guatemala has
all but stopped importing Canadian wheat and now imports five classes of
U.S. wheat. In 2011/12, USW made sure Guatemalan millers met with staff
and several USW farmer board members at the Latin American Millers Association
meeting in Antigua. These long-term activities form a strong base for future
sales in this growing Central American market.
