Buyers & Processors

Exports

Are you interested in buying wheat or barley from the United States?

The Washington Grain Commission (WGC) does not buy or sell wheat or barley, but we can connect buyers with the elevators and exporters who do.   U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) and U.S. Grains Council (USGC) serve as the American farmers’ export market development organizations representing wheat and barley.

More information on barley is offered by the U.S. Grains Council.

The WGC frequently hosts trade teams for overseas buyers interested in Washington wheat and barley. Coordinated through U.S. Wheat Associates, U.S. Grains Council, the WGC provides tours of farms, country grain elevators and grain inspection offices allow customers to be assured of the quality of wheat and barley they are receiving.
