Member Benefits

“The biggest value of our membership and participation in the MWTC is the quality of market research and trade data available to us.  We’ve requested information spanning several continents and various topics and are consistently impressed with the detailed and relevant reports we receive.  We also appreciate the opportunity to build relationships with other Montana businesses to share ideas and experiences and to collectively advocate for the advancement of Montana products in the global market.”

—Tara Blyth, KAMUT
