NAMA Issues 4Q 2011 Milling Production Report
Date Posted: February 24, 2012
NAMA has retained Veris Consulting, Inc. to survey the 24 largest U.S. wheat, durum and rye milling companies on their flour production in the fourth quarter of 2011 (October, November, December)*.
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.
After additional legal review, NAMA decided to change reporting categories in this quarter and publish this report in a manner that more closely resembled the flour production reports issued by the Census Bureau.
