NEW COLLEAGUE: U.S. Wheat Associates is welcoming a new colleague to its South Asia Regional Office in Singapore.

Biscuit, baking and noodle technologist joins U.S. Wheat Associates

Kong Song 'Ivan' Goh joins U.S. Wheat Associates' South Asian Regional office in Singapore.

U.S. Wheat Associates is welcoming a new colleague to its South Asian Region Office in Singapore. Kong Song "Ivan" Goh joined the organization March 17 as biscuit, baking and noodle technologist. USW represents the interests of U.S. wheat farmers in the global milling wheat market.

Goh recently travelled to Thailand with USW’s veteran bakery consultant Roy Chung to analyze and compare wheat and flour quality from the U.S. and other countries.

"I have already seen that this organization is uniquely able to build a link between U.S. wheat farmers and their overseas buyers by providing market information and technical support to its customers," Goh says.  "No other wheat supplier provides the same services in the South Asia region."

"We are pleased that Ivan can bring extensive experience in quality assurance and control to help flour mills, bakeries, cookie/cracker and confectionery processors better understand the quality, value and use of U.S. wheat flour," says Matt Weimar, USW regional vice president. "Ivan will soon join Roy Chung again to meet with milling and baking customers in Indonesia. It is just the start of what we know will be a long-term role supporting Roy and expanding technical support that helps differentiate U.S. wheat in this rapidly growing region."

A Malaysian native who is fluent in several languages, Goh most recently held positions over five years in quality assurance and control, technical sales service, and other functions with FFM Berhad (Federal Flour Mills) in West Port Klang, Malaysia. He earned a bachelor’s degree in food science and technology from University Putra in Malaysia, and has taken USW-sponsored courses in baking science and technology, and cookies and cracker technology, at the UFM Baking School in Bangkok, Thailand. When Goh is not traveling for USW activities, he will work from his home base in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, and the USW South Asian Office in Singapore.  

USW’s mission is to develop, maintain and expand international markets to enhance wheat’s profitability for U.S. wheat producers and its value for their customers in more than 100 countries. Its activities are made possible through producer checkoff dollars managed by 17 state wheat commissions and cost-share funding provided by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service.
