As noted in the letter, in accordance with the Federal law "On consumer basket in the Russian Federation", the annual demand for flour in Russia is about 15 million tons, including of wheat at 13.5 million tons, rye - 1.5 million tons, cereals - 1.5 million tons.
"For the production of a specified quantity of flour and cereals, with quality corresponding to requirements of GOST, it is necessary not less than 18 million tons of wheat 3 class, no less than 1.9 million tonnes of rye 1 and class 2 and more than 2 million tons of cereals. So you need a total of about 22 million tons of grain for food purposes", - the document says.
This clarifies that this calculation is only true for the current population. In that case, if it is expected to increase in the long term, it is necessary to provide a corresponding increase in the amount of grain allocated for food.
"If the amount of grain for food purposes will not correspond to the established norms of consumption, the remaining volumes can be replaced with grain of lower standards for production of products not conforming to the requirements of GOST. Thus, long-term development strategy of the grain complex will include the production of bakery products of low quality that do not meet the requirements of the normative documents for the concept of long-term development of the industry is absolutely unacceptable", - summarized in the letter.
