2011 Idaho Wheat Commission Marketing Opportunities

Demand for Hard White Wheat for the domestic market continues to be larger than what is grown in Idaho.  Most growers are able to quickly dispose of the Hard White Wheat harvest.  Contact grain handlers in southern Idaho to establish a contract or to sell your Hard White Wheat.

Customers in Mexico are taking more Soft White Wheat from Idaho than in the past.  Lansing Grain and Moreland Grain are among the shippers sending their Soft White Wheat to Mexico in 2011. 

A prominent Mexican miller is also ordering Hard Red Spring Wheat from Idaho for the first time ever.  AgriSource will be handling this new customer.  Shipments begin in November 2011.

The Taiwan Flour Mills Association visited Idaho in September 2011.  They continue to have an interest in Hard White Wheat.  The Idaho Wheat Commission can provide trade contacts to Idaho grain handlers willing to load Hard White Wheat into containers for shipment to Taiwan.
