U.S. Wheat Associates happy grain inspections will continue


The U.S. Wheat Associates welcomed the news that all steps necessary were being taken by the USDA to ensure grain inspections continued amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The organization’s president Vince Peterson gave the following statement:

“Wheat importers around the world trust the United States as a reliable supplier. One of the foundations of that earned trust comes from the assurance provided by the official inspection process and certification performed by the Federal Grain Inspection Service that accompanies every cargo exported. We are pleased to see reassurance from USDA that it will do all it can to ensure that the U.S. wheat store will remain open during this time of global uncertainty. U.S. Wheat Associates will continue to monitor supply chains, inspection services and do our part to ensure customers can receive the wheat they need.”
