In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) has asked colleagues in our Headquarters and West Coast Offices to work from home through March 31. Our overseas offices are also implementing individual plans to protect the health and well-being of our colleagues, their families and our customers.
We will continue to review our operational policies as needed with guidance from government officials in the United States and overseas.
Many formal wheat export market development activities, especially those that require travel, have been suspended. However, we plan to reschedule as many of them as possible.
In this unprecedented circumstance, we remain committed to fulfilling our mission. We encourage our customers and stakeholders to reach out to our colleagues by telephone, email or online communications apps. We remain ready to provide the information our customers need about U.S. wheat supplies or any market concerns that may arise.
Contact information for all of our offices are posted online at https://www.uswheat.org/about-us/office-locations/.
All of us at USW has been and will continue doing all we can to support our customers while taking care of our families and ourselves. Thank you for your patience as we navigate these uncharted waters together.
