U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) works on behalf of U.S. wheat producers to help wheat buyers, millers, bakers, wheat food processors and government officials understand the quality, value and reliability of all six classes of U.S. wheat.
The U.S. grain marketing system is reliable and transparent but can be complicated. So USW keeps buyers and wheat food processors informed about crop quality and prices — an effort that also includes risk management and technical education, market analysis and in-country demand creation.
Buyers and users can specify the qualities necessary for almost every end-use product by choosing from among the six classes grown across the country. This combination of reliability and quality provides excellent value to U.S. wheat customers.
- Trade Servicing
USW works directly with overseas buyers to answer questions and resolve issues in purchasing, shipping or using U.S. wheat through regional and country offices, trade delegations to the United States, regular crop and market condition updates, quality surveys and other activities.
- Technical Assistance
USW sponsors participation in technical courses, workshops and seminars to help strengthen milling, storage, handling and end-product industries. Other activities include personalized consulting in milling, baking, snack food and pasta production and grain storage and handling.
- Market Information and Analysis
USW regularly gathers and analyzes relevant market data. USW shares information with buyers on trade policy, standards or specifications that may affect imports, and projections for future wheat production and consumption.
USW publishes several regular reports, covering:
- Consumer Promotion
USW works with customers and other U.S. grain industry partners to expand consumer awareness and appreciation for wheat foods, including nutritional information through seminars, consumer demonstrations, trade shows and promotional campaign support.
