Behind the world’s most reliable supply of wheat are the world’s most dependable people. Those people, from U.S. Wheat Associates staff to the state wheat commissions and U.S. wheat farm families to the many hands along the U.S. supply chain, and finally our overseas customers – are all a part of our story. Despite the different roles or distances between us, all of the people in our story share an unspoken connection, not only through U.S. wheat but through our shared values of growth, hard work and family. We appreciate the many congratulatory messages and well wishes from our friends and customers from all over the world.
Message from Mr. Moulay Abdelkader, President, National Milling Federation, Morocco:
“The celebration of the 40th anniversary of U.S. Wheat Associates provides an opportunity to honor the historic relationship between our two institutions! For over three decades, the National Milling Federation (NMF) and U.S. Wheat Associates have been forging strong cooperation and partnership relations, which were rewarded in 1993 by the construction of and equipment for the Milling Training Institute (IFIM), dedicated to the training of Moroccan and African milling technicians, with a vision to improve the industry’s overall level of expertise. The Institute’s graduates have now reached more than 500, working in … [North] Africa and the Arabian Gulf countries.
Not to mention the efforts made by U.S. Wheat Associates for the implementation of the Miller Outreach Program (MOP), which has made it possible to finance the functioning of IFIM by providing paid services to milling industry professionals, and the annual allocation of U.S. wheat for the IFIM pilot mill practical sessions.
U.S. Wheat Associates is continuing its efforts to support the NMF’s work in promoting and upgrading the Moroccan milling industry, particularly by sponsoring the “Grain & Milling Expo” trade show (formerly IFIM’s technical sessions), and by organizing training seminars for industry professionals.
We look forward to further strengthening our bilateral relations and remain the partner of U.S. wheat in the Maghreb and West Africa… long live the U.S. Wheat Associates!”
