NAMA retained Veris Consulting, Inc. to survey the 24 largest U.S. wheat, durum and rye milling companies on their flour production in the third quarter of 2012 (July, August, September)*.

Full Report

Data published in this report are based on data voluntarily reported to Veris.

The capacity share of these companies is given as 95.4%*.

All companies responded to the survey.

Therefore, total industry volume presented is less than 100% and the numbers provided will not accurately show total industry volume.

No estimates were made to bring the volume up to 100 %.

The Census Department did not disclose the name or number of respondents to their surveys.

They did note in footnotes accompanying past reports that some numbers have been estimated.

Therefore, data published in this report may not be comparable to historical reports.

Third quarter 2012 Wheat flour production (1,000 cwt sacks) as reported by Veris on behalf of NAMA is 103,751.
