Milling priorities in the next farm bill

NAMA staff report on their efforts to shore up support for the small grain milling industry in the US to continue delivery of vital aid and sustenance the world over.

Introduction to NAMA and the Farm Bill

The North American Millers’ Association (NAMA) represents millers of wheat, corn, oats and rye across the continental United States, Puerto Rico and Canada. NAMA’s members take raw grain and, through grinding and crushing, create flour and other products that are used to make bread, cereals, pasta, cookies, cakes and snack foods.

Headquartered in the Washington DC area, NAMA is the milling industry’s voice before regulatory agencies, Congress and the White House. NAMA also collaborates with other stakeholders to communicate the industry’s commitments to food safety, protect the role of grain foods in providing nutrition in Americans’ diets, and promote the safety, sustainability and efficiency of the grain supply chain.
