Growing Our Future
Grain Craft is committed to supporting and driving the long-term improvement of wheat quality, flour quality, flour consistency and ongoing exploration of innovation opportunities We work together with growers to promote the use of wheat varieties that result in dependable baking qualities and a focus on stewardship and progressive agronomic practices.
Throughout the years, we have prioritized wheat quality improvement and we continue to promote the benefits of preferred varieties to our growers. The Grain Craft Preferred Variety Program includes varieties that have been thoroughly tested and selected based on key milling and baking characteristics. Each of these varieties has shown successful yield and end-use performance.
Food safety is paramount in our daily processes. We have developed and implemented HACCP-based food safety plans and procedures at each of our milling facilities to ensure compliance with Global Food Safety Initiatives (GFSI) and the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Our mills are also SQF certified.

Baking partners and organizations are critical to understand flour performance needs and for us to be a resource in troubleshooting and product development. We work together to continue the love of wheat-based products.
We collaborate with all major wheat-breeding programs and provide feedback on the milling and baking quality of potential new releases.
State Commissions & Producer Groups
Our frequent interaction with wheat commissions, growers and extension experts allows us to collaborate on initiatives and research for long-term quality and yield improvement, new crop evaluations and soil health management.
