Albanian farmers and importers announced in a joint meeting that they faced an overproduction of wheat during this year. Present in the meeting was also the Minister of Agriculture Edmond Panariti.
During his word, the Minister declared that Albanian producers are obliged to follow the regulation of the integrated package, which foresees that the level of proteins in wheat products must be no more than 12%.
According to him, “producers will have to apply European standards in the production of flour and its sub products. Processing factories will use only high quality flour. We will not allow the infiltration of low quality wheat in our country”. The integrated package of wheat got approved on January and entered in force for the producers and the importers of wheat.
According to agricultural experts, the overproduction will decrease the amount of wheat imported and this will reduce the price of this product.
