The North American Miller's Association (NAMA) is a trade association that represents the wheat, corn, oat and rye milling industry. Its purpose is to organize and promote the general welfare, benefit, and common purposes of the dry grain milling and protein grain processing industry. [1]

NAMA is represented on the CFTC's Subcommittee on Convergence in Agricultural Commodity Markets by Rick Cole of General Mills, Inc. [2]

History

NAMA was established in April 1998 as a result of the merger of the Millers' National Federation (established 1902), the American Corn Millers' Federation (established 1918), and Protein Grain Products International. In 1999 the American Oat Association (established 1988) merged with NAMA.
