World wheat flour production update

by Teresa Acklin
Share This:

   The International Grains Council periodically compiles data from member and non-member countries to estimate wheat flour production around the world. The data are supplemented by information from the United Nations Statistical Yearbook and I.G.C. estimates derived from reports of production and trade.

   Reporting systems and requirements vary significantly from country to country. For example, in countries where only the commercial output by large mills is included, total flour production may be underestimated by a considerable margin. In other cases, country data may include durum/semolina output or flour milled from other grains. Reporting years also differ among the countries.

   Nonetheless, the data provide a look at trends, both within specific countries and globally. The following table contains the most current production estimates, in terms of flour, as reported by the I.G.C. Countries not listed provided no data for any of the years shown.
