NAMA Issues 1Q Flour Production Data
Date Posted: May 14, 2012
NAMA has retained Veris Consulting, Inc. to survey the 24 largest U.S. wheat, durum and rye milling companies* on their flour production on a quarterly basis.
Data published in this report are based on data voluntarily reported to Veris for the first quarter of FY 2012 (January, February and March).
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%.
As noted previously, 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.
Veris will accept revisions to previously published reports.
Veris will keep company specific data for a rolling five quarters and those industry reports can be revised.
To date, no revisions have been submitted.
Attached here is the first quarter 2012 production and capacity data that was collected by Veris.
*As listed in the Grain and Milling Annual 2012
