Grain milling symposium focuses on new developments.

   A meeting of international grain millers recently concluded that ever-tougher market conditions were challenging the industry to achieve top performance.

   The millers also concluded that high-efficiency processing installations were necessary to compete successfully in the international marketplace.

   More than 120 grain millers from 20 countries took part in the meeting, the sixth Milling Convention, held in Wildhaus, Switzerland, in April. Buhler Group of Uzwil, Switzerland, was host of the four-day symposium. The meeting focused on development trends in the milling industry as well as information about new milling developments.

   Buhler said it had redefined its research and development activities over the past few years in response to the particular conditions prevailing in today's industry. The company presented a range of innovations at its Uzwil headquarters during the convention. Buhler officials noted these innovations were the result of “one of the most comprehensive development programs ever undertaken” by the company's grain milling business unit.

   Buhler has been closely linked to the grain milling industry for more than 125 years, and its customer support specialists represent the company worldwide. Buhler said its emphasis for products and services centered on design, supply and construction of complete grain milling facilities for production of flour and semolina from different grain varieties, in addition to starch production mills, ready mix blending systems and raw material processing lines for the baking industry.
