Flour millers from Caribbean countries are visiting four states next week to learn more about U.S. wheat and the country’s supply system.
U.S. Wheat Associates is sponsoring the visit in cooperation with the Foreign Agriculture Service and state wheat commissions in Kansas, North Dakota, Nebraska and Louisiana.
Officials say the wheat buyers from Guyana, Haiti, St. Vincent and Trinidad are either new to the industry or have a history of purchasing wheat from U.S. competitors. They say the trip is an opportunity to grow U.S. market share in the Caribbean.
