About NAMA

The North American Millers’ Association represents millers of wheat, corn, oats, and rye in the U.S. and Canada. Our members take raw grain and transform it into flour and other products that are used to make such favorite foods as bread, cereals, pasta, cookies, cakes, and snack foods. We’re proud to be the indispensable link between raw grain and healthy and delicious products that have sustained and enriched people’s lives for centuries.

NAMA’s 37 members have 149 locations across 31 states. Utilizing the technical expertise of our members and staff, we represent the milling industry before the White House, federal agencies, and Congress.
