I.G.C. lowers world flour trade outlook

I.G.C. lowers world flour trade outlook | MED-Amin network |

Par Arvin Donley, Baking Business, 27/11/2018

World wheat flour trade for 2018-19 was revised downward by 100,000 tonnes of wheat equivalent (less than 1%) by the International Grains Council but is still in line with last year’s estimated total of 17.1 million tonnes.

The I.G.C. released its quarterly forecast on Nov. 22 as part of its monthly Grain Market Review report. In August, the I.G.C. forecast 2018-19 global flour trade at 17.2 million tonnes.

 “Although only a limited amount of information is so far available, volumes by the main flour exporters (mostly covering June through September) are generally below last season, particularly to sub-Saharan Africa and Pacific Asia,” the I.G.C. said.

In the war-torn Middle East, imports are trending upward, the I.G.C. noted. “In contrast, tonnage shipped to (the Middle East) is slightly higher year on year, where local agricultural production and flour processing continue to be affected by conflict in some countries,” the I.G.C. said.
