The largest wheat importer in the South Asia region - Indonesia imports about 5.5 million tonnes of wheat per year - approximately 50-55% of that wheat coming from Australia Per capita wheat consumption is low with good scope to grow - flour consumption is approx 17kg per capita - Compared to China 80kg; Japan 47kg; Thailand 30kg or Australia 309kg per capita.. Advantages of Australian Wheat Represents good value and has freight benefits for both consumers and producers Good milling extraction millers can extract more flour from.. Market Visit noodle end uses - Instant Noodles - high volume / low value (WA dominates the market share) Wet noodles / Yellow Alkaline Noodles (Hokkien style) - medium volume / medium value - growth potential for Australian wheat Niche market (hand made noodles - Lamien) - very low volume, high value Dried noodles - low volume, low to medium value..
