In countries such as Indonesia, flour milling only dates back to the 1970s, but rapid growth in the past 20 years has seen wheat-based products rise to become dietary staples... Greg Harvey, managing director of Interflour, one of the largest millers in the region, says Malaysia currently has higher levels of consumption per person because it is more advanced economically, but Indonesia is rapidly catching up... To put this into a clearer market perspective, Mr Harvey points out that if consumption of wheat-based products in Indonesia only reaches Malaysia's current consumption, it would require 16 million tonnes of wheat a year...

The Australian grains industry has continued its market extension with customers in Asia through conferences in Singapore, and in Beijing and Guangzhou, China, in February and March...

Mr Storey said there was also more capacity for customised container shipments, and this supply chain now exported more than three million tonnes of grain per year...

Drought, crop disease and pests aside, one of the more subversive threats to Australia's grains industry is fad diets that discourage people from eating grain-based foods... One of the most popular of these in recent times is the Atkins Diet, which advocates minimal intake of carbohydrate-rich foods such as bread, rice and pasta, on the basis that these foods, and the carbohydrates they contain, provide excess energy to the body and are fattening... Consumer research commissioned by Go Grains shows that many people, especially women, remain 'carb conscious' and that the industry needs to remain vigilant about rebutting the myths and misconceptions associated with diets that discourage consumption of grain-based foods...
