Pellman Participates in USW Core Competency Training

Posted: Jun 19 2023

USW recently hosted – and participated in – the 2023 Core Competency Training, held this year in Santiago, Chile. The USW workshop brought together USW technical staff, board members and partners for a series of reviews and refreshers on wheat research, product development, market updates and strategy building. Meeting the needs of U.S. wheat buyers, end-users and consumers around the globe was the mission.  Jim Pellman, NDWC Vice Chairman, participated in the course.  The course took place at the new flour milling, cereal chemistry and baking laboratory it opened two years ago in partnership with Universidad Mayor.

According to Miguel Galdos, Regional Director of the USW South American Region Office, U.S. wheat is the most reliable choice, and its quality is unmatched. Information provided during the workshop is designed to help USW staff share information about U.S. wheat’s advantages when it comes to end-products, such as noodles, crackers, biscuits, tortillas, breads, and other baked products.

There is also a chance to meet with staff from other offices to share information. In addition to Pellman, Oregon wheat farmer and USW Past Chairman Darren Padget and Minnesota wheat farmer and USW Chair Rhonda Larson participated in this year’s training. They noted that the opportunity for USW colleagues to train together is very valuable.
