Pakistan struggles with wheat stocks, drives up wheat bran price

May 22, 2020

by Zahrah Imtiaz – The Pakistan government’s decision to stock wheat has caused a shortage of wheat going into flour mills. This in turn has impacted the availability of wheat bran used for animal feed. Multan based Ryan Feed, CEO, Dr Ahmad Tahir told Asian Agribiz that wheat bran prices shot up to USD 0.23/kg from USD 0.16/kg. “Our margins are almost nil now” he said. Overall feed prices however, have remained stable despite the increase in wheat bran prices. The onset of the new corn harvests will help ease raw material prices.
