Manufacture of Flour & Grain Mill Products in South Africa 2019 - ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN--()--The "Manufacture of Flour and Grain Mill Products in South Africa 2019" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Manufacture of Flour and Grain Mill Products:

The grain milling sector plays a vital role in food security as its products are the primary ingredients of South Africa's staple foods, and the sector is a major determinant of the price of maize meal and bread. Pest infestation, droughts and other effects of climate change pose a threat to grain production and in the 2018/19 production season, most summer crop harvests fell due to dry weather conditions at the start of the season.

Rising Costs:

The cost of food manufacturing is influenced by the price of raw commodities and by non-food inputs such electricity, labour, packaging material and fuel. Transport and logistics can account for almost 35% of the final cost of maize products, and almost all freight in South Africa is transported by road, which is 30% more costly than rail. Many farmers have had to buy more pesticides as the fall armyworm has caused significant damage to maize and potato crops in some areas. These factors have contributed to the cost of bread increasing above inflation in 2019.

Wheat Imports:

About half of the flour used by the bread industry is milled from imported wheat. Imports increased due to the severe drought in 2017/18 in the Western Cape, which affected wheat production. The wheat industry has embarked on a revival strategy to encourage farmers to plant more wheat.
