The wide range of classes and functional characteristics of U.S. wheat allows customers to produce flour for almost every end-product. Part of USW’s value-added mission is to help strengthen milling, storage and handling and wheat food industries through technical courses and service activities that demonstrate the quality, value and reliability of U.S. wheat.
To fulfill that mission, USW currently works closely with several experienced and respected risk management, milling and food processing consultants from around the world.
“Every wheat market that USW works in has a unique line up of end-products and changing consumer preferences, so engaging consultants who are experts in their field has become an essential part of promoting U.S. wheat,” said Erica Oakley, USW Program Manager. “We are proud of the work our current group of consultants have done and will continue to do. We also see the interest in our services growing, so we welcome the chance to hear from additional consultants who may be interested in helping provide the assistance and training that will benefit our customers.”
USW is currently seeking recommendations for consultants with expertise in the following areas:
- Cookies and crackers
- Pasta (durum and non-durum)
- Asian noodles
- Wheat procurement and risk management
