Wheat - Category Spend Analysis

 

According to analysts at SpendEdge, one of the key growth drivers for the global wheat market is the growth in production of different varieties/breeds of wheat through the adoption of double haploid technology. Farmers/suppliers genetically modify wheat plant to grow a wheat crop of desirable traits. However, genetically modified wheat crops are not commercially available as they are not approved by a certified body.

Biotechnology tools such as double haploid technology is an important equipment to fasten the crop breeding methods in the changing climatic conditions. The use of such technologies has assisted in catering to the buyer's demand for different varieties of wheat. For instance, in North America and Europe, countries are increasingly positioning themselves toward producing different varieties of wheat through double haploid technology, which may indicate a potential acceleration of the technology in these regions.

Wheat - Procurement Best Practices

 

One of the procurement best practices is to ensure the utilization of effective crop management practices by suppliers to maintain a high-quality yield with optimal protein content. Effective crop management focuses on the following parameters -

Variety – Suppliers can use MSU variety selection tool web page to help pick a high yielding, high-protein variety based on the traits desired, location, and cropping system. The major purpose of increasing protein content in wheat varieties is to make bread

Rotation and cultivation – Suppliers must ensure regular rotation of crops for the retention of protein content. For instance, dryland winter wheat has consistently high protein content when grown after pea than grown after barley

Wheat - Procurement Challenges

 

According to this procurement market research report, one of the major procurement challenges faced by buyers is the risk of procuring low-quality wheat as it is adulterated for increasing its protein content. This makes the food products containing wheat unhealthy for consumption and may result in dangerous food products that contain poisonous chemicals along with the inability to meet buyers’ requirements. Production delays due to the recall of such unsafe food products produced by noncompliant suppliers will cost millions of dollars to buyers’ firms in the form of warranty costs and associated inventory adjustments. For instance, in 2007, Menu Foods’ (buyer of wheat) market capitalization was halved after the company called its pet food (containing wheat) as its suppliers were suspected of mixing toxic melamine into their wheat gluten to make it appear more protein-rich.
