The North Dakota Wheat Commission is hosting a group of baking company executives from Japan.

The commission says the goal is to give the Japanese bakers a better understanding of the U.S. grain system, and boost customer relations.

The Japanese market isn't new to North Dakota wheat, but the commission says most trade teams involve milling company officials. This week's trip is to give Japanese bakers a better understanding of U.S. wheat production, quality and crop breeding efforts.

Japan imports about 185 million bushels of wheat each year, with the U.S. supplying just over half of that amount. Much of it is hard red spring wheat, North Dakota's staple crop.
