fter overcoming the initial impacts of COVID-19,
the milling industry quickly realized the importance
of food security during a pandemic and
started investing again in expansions and new projects.
" 2020 was most certainly an extraordinary year and we
have seen investor hesitation due to COVID-19, " said one
supplier who participated in World Grain's annual survey
of the international milling industry's equipment and service
providers. " The world was in deep shock but soon
we all came to realize the importance of food security. We
have started to discuss the investment opportunities for
different regions. "
The food industry, including wheat mills in general,
were not as affected as other sectors by COVID-19, said
another supplier.
" In many cases the production and demand for their
products actually increased, so demand for our equipment
and services increased to an extent, " the supplier said.
Travel restrictions have impacted project commissioning
teams, another supplier said. But the company still has
50 projects in the pipeline on four continents.
" Amidst lockdowns, travel restrictions, and significant
health risks worldwide, we not only kept our ongoing
projects on track but also undertook new projects and ultimately
managed to complete them all as promised, " the
supplier said.
More customers, because of the pandemic, wanted remote
monitoring and support. The pandemic also has af58
fected
the supply chain, including the availability of semiconductors,
the skyrocketing price of steel and increasing
costs of shipping rates.
Concerns remain over safety, with requirements getting
stricter and equipment being designed to provide the highest
safety parameters, eliminate any possible infestation
points and a change in materials.
For example, Sangati Berga constructed its GBF model
plansifter frame and sieves with sheet molding compound.
There are no connecting elements, seals, nails or screws.
Construction with rounded edges and smooth surfaces
avoids retention of products, facilitating the cleaning and
sanitizing process. The raw material and manufacturing
chosen for the new frames and sieves produces a lower
environmental impact, with low energy consumption
along its lifecycle and recyclability.
Expansion and modernization projects are popular as
millers look to meet increasing demand but are somewhat
hesitant to make the full investment in a greenfield project,
suppliers said. While demand for flour is rising, the
available resources are not.
" The world needs more productivity and efficiency, "
one supplier said. " Milling plants are expected to be more
productive to meet this rising demand. This ask will be
combined with maintenance efforts and it will play a key
role for reducing operational costs with predictive maintenance
services. "
Suppliers said they are seeing increasing demand from
