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, represent an industry that is always changing. But many of the overseas customers USW works with overseas can also say the same. 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.
These connections are a part of our story.

LIEN HWA MILLING CORPORATION
“The friendship between Lien Hwa Flour Mill and the U.S. wheat industry started in 1940. At that time, a flour bag with “Sino-US cooperation” in Chinese on it was the collective memory of many Taiwanese. Our founder, Mr. Miao Yu-Siou, made great contributions to the Taiwan flour milling industry, including founding the Taiwan Flour Millers Association and in 1984, establishing the China Grain Products Research & Development Institute (CGPRDI), which USW contributed funds to. Lien Hwa Flour Mill and the Miao family has cooperated with USW for several decades to jointly promote the progress of the Taiwan baking and flour products industry.”
