The milling industry hasn’t had it easy this year. Excessive rainfall in the UK, severe frost in the EU and prolonged periods of drought in the US have had a dramatic effect on crop growth, driving up the cost of grain and flour along with it. According to the Foreign Agricultural Service’s report produced in September by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), wheat production in Europe dropped from 137.4 to 132.4 million metric tonnes/hectares during this year’s harvest. The National Farmers’ Union has also reported a sorry story for the UK, with wheat yields down 14.1 percent on a five-year average – the lowest seen since the 1980s.
