Our Priorities


NAMA’s priorities reflect the role of our members as a crucial link in the food supply chain. We support policies and programs that protect the farmer’s ability to produce high-quality grains; transportation policies that help move grain and finished products cost-effectively and efficiently; food regulations that recognize the miller’s unique job of transforming raw grain into food ingredients; and food and nutrition programs that reflect the important role of grain-based foods in the diet and that strive to prevent hunger globally.
