Kazakhstan continued reducing flour production — APK-Inform




For July-October of 2019/20 MY, the production volumes of wheat flour in the Republic of Kazakhstan totaled 919 thsd tonnes, a decrease of 16% compared with the same period last season.

According to APK-Inform analysts, the high prices of raw materials, slowing down of sales of large-scale batches of grains by agrarians, as well as reducing of the demand of the major importers, made its impact on the production and sales of the product.

In particular, in the current season the production volumes of wheat flour can reach 3.1 mln tonnes, down 8.7% compared with 2018/19 MY. At the same time, the exports will reduce by 23% compared with last season — to 1.5 mln tonnes, the experts said.
