Title: ●Wheat Flour Foods Promotion, Research, and Information Order (AMS-LP-20-0024) 

This proposed rule invites comments on the establishment of an industry-funded promotion, research, and information program for wheat flour used to produce grain foods.  The proposed Wheat Flour Foods Promotion, Research, and Information Order was submitted to the U.S. Department of Agriculture by the Grain Foods Foundation (GFF), a group of baking and milling industries and allied suppliers.  The proposed Order submitted by GFF is intended to increase sales by reversing the current decline in wheat flour consumption, improving the perception of bread, and producing research to strengthen the industry’s promotion of bread through:  (a) Consumer Media; (b) Retail Channel Development; (c) Food Service Channel Development; and (d) Science/Nutrition Research.  The proposed order submitted by GFF intends to improve consumption of grain foods, ensure that benefits to the entire industry are paid for by the entire industry, and allow for consistent funding to maximize promotion and research efforts.
