The campaign to increase consumption of whole grains for health is a worldwide movement. The Whole Grains Council works closely with affiliates in other countries, including the following organizations.
The Danish Wholegrain Campaign
Denmark has a very active organization promoting whole grains. In 2009, when the campaign started, only 6% of Danes were eating the 75g of whole grains per day recommended for most adults by Danish health authorities. Through creative consumer education programs and active support of manufacturers who are making whole grain products, the Danish Wholegrain Campaign is already making great progress in its mission to "increase the accessibility of wholegrain products and increase awareness of the beneficial effects of wholegrain."Learn more on their website.

HEALTHGRAIN Forum's mission is to promote science-based concepts that unlock the health-promoting potential in the entire grain-production food chain to obtain healthy, convenient and appealing foods.Learn more on their website.
