Headquartered in Ankara, the Turkish Grain Board (TMO) is a subsidiary organisation of the Ministry of Food, Agriculture and Livestock.  The TMO was formed as a state economic enterprise to deal with wheat affairs under Law No 3491 of 24/06/1938 published in the Official Journal on 13/07/1938. 
 
This Law mandated the Turkish Grain Board to prevent abnormal fluctuations of wheat prices for producers and consumers, to protect and regulate the wheat industry, to import or export wheat when necessary, to monitor global wheat production trends and market movements, to establish milling facilities and bakeries in determined locations, to run and maintain the state monopoly in regard to narcotics, and to carry on other similar tasks.
