					                     TIGHTENING CEREALS SUPPLY SITUATION



The European Starch Industry Association (AAF) has informed the European Commission
about its serious concern regarding the current very tight supply situation in the cereals
market and its impact on costs.

The current shortage of cereals availability is mainly due to a combination of poor climatic
conditions and low stock levels in EU and also on the world market together with an
increasing demand (e.g. higher consumption in Asia, biofuel production).

As the European market is more and more linked with the world grain markets and
consequently more sensitive to price volatility, it asked the European Commission to act to
improve cereal accessibility and trade fluidity in order to alleviate the current market supply
situation.
