Partnerships & Exports


The Washington Grain Commission does not buy or sell wheat or barley, and yet it serves as an essential link in the grain chain. Commissioners and staff not only intercede on behalf of farmers, wheat importers and exporters, when challenges arise, the group also helps maintain cordial relationships among customers. This is accomplished with overseas visits to milling and baking facilities as well as participation in meetings and events. Countries and companies frequently reciprocate with visits to the United States with the WGC annually hosting a dozen or more trade teams wanting to learn more about the wheat and barley industries and the crop itself.
Under Washington Wheat Suppliers, a listing of companies that assemble large shipments of grain for overseas and domestic destinations can be found. Several national organizations assist with these sales.
U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) and the U.S. Grains Council (USGC) serve as the American farmers’ export market development organizations representing wheat and barley.


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

The Washington Grain Commission may not buy broker or sell wheat, but it does help promote wheat sales, paving the way for farmers, elevator companies and exporters to do just that.
With exports of wheat and barley measured in thousands of tons, sales are facilitated through export grain companies. U.S. Wheat Associates and the U.S. Grains Council are national organizations that work with buyers to provide technical specification assistance to facilitate export sales of wheat and barley.  
Contact the nearest U.S. Wheat Associates office or the U.S. Grains Council for more information on wheat and barely exports.  A list of Washington’s bulk shipment operations can be found below. Consumers looking to buy small quantities of unmilled wheat berries can turn to local small sale platforms that can be found on the Internet.
