GRAINS – A GIFT FROM MOTHER EARTH
Take any culture, any country or cuisine – you will find the daily menu and serving plate dominated by food staples, which contribute a significant portion of energy and nutrient needs. Cereal Grains, such as Wheat, Rice, Corn and Oats are considered staple food, mainstay of the diet and calorie source to millions around the world. Consequently, Grains as a commodity are integral to food security, and rank high in economic importance.
Large tracts of land are essential for Grain Cultivation, hence countries with large geographic area tend to be leaders in food production. USA, China and India each produce more food than the entire European Union put together, followed by Brazil.
Wheat is known as the “Bread of Life” and Wheat growers and Wheat Suppliers can be found in nearly every country in the world. Rice is primarily grown in Asian and African countries, and Rice Millers constitute a significant part of the value chain that reaches the commodity in bulk form to the markets. Sorghum. known as Jowar in India, is grown for Grain or for processing into Sorghum Syrup. With India being one of the largest producers of Grain Sorghum in the world, Broom Corn (Jowar) Manufacturers can be found across the country. Maize, also known as Corn and referred to in Hindi as Makka, is globally one of the top three largest produced crops, cultivated on a large scale in most of the countries in the world, and sold by Corn-Maize suppliers on wholesale and retail basis.
The International Grain Council Estimates that world total Grains (Wheat and Coarse Grains) production will reach a record 2,084m t in 2016/17, an increase of 81m y/y. According to the Food and Agricultural Organisation (FAO), world wheat production in 2016 is estimated at 749 million tonnes. Global Maize Production is forecast at 1 027 million tonnes. World rice production forecast is at an all time high of 499 million tonnes. As for trading, the FAO’s forecast for world trade in cereals in 2015/16 is 349.4 million tonnes.
