Event: GRAPAS Conference 2014 call for speakers

Perendale Publishers is pleased to be hosting the GRAPAS Conference Asia 2014. We are focusing on millers and in particular rice, flour and food milling.

"There is plenty of information for feed millers at the Victam and FIAAP Exhibitions. We are intent on delivering useful information to those millers producing food products for consumers. We want this event to become a significant meeting point for millers from throughout the region.

"To accommodate the various aspects of food milling we have split the programme into three, thereby allowing visitors an opportunity to be selective in how they spend their time over the three-day exhibition. We are seeking company-sponsored speakers for our programme which takes place on April 8, 2014.

"Of course, GRAPAS exhibits will be on the exhibition floor itself, interspersed with Victam and FIAAP exhibits," says Roger Gilbert from Perendale Publishers which owns Grain and Feed Milling Technology magazine and owns International Aquafeed magazine.

30/09/13: Silos on offer in yard sale; Alltech opens mycotoxin lab in Beijing; new XTRACT® junior product manager for Pancosma

Yard sales are an American tradition. You can buy pretty much anything there. Including silos.

A brewing company in Delaware, USA is selling two of its old silos, which were used to house spelt grains, in yard sale. 

The 925-cubic-feet silos have been sitting unused for almost six years in Fordham Brewing Co. in Dover.

Estimated at $4,000 each, the silos can be used for a whole host of purposes, not just storing grains. for example, the Silos Cordoba water tank that is now an aquaculture pond or the metal silo that is has been transformed into an energy-efficient home.

So if you want to grab a bargain silo for business or pleasure, the yard is the place to look.

27/09/2013: Wheat port access approved by ACCC; USA and Japan organic trade partnership; land management practices

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has accepted Emerald Grain’s wheat port access undertaking agreement after feedback from industry counterparts.

“Emerald Grain is in favour of competition at ports and in the Australian grain market. Competition at Australian ports and grain storage facilities means a better return for Australian growers,” said John Warda, Emerald Grain Group general manager supply chain & operations.

The new undertaking will be in place from October 1, 2013.

The United States and Japan have announced that as of January 1, 2014, organic products certified in Japan or in the United States may be sold as organic in either country.

This partnership will give US farmers' and processors' the opportunity to access the growing Japanese organic market, adding to a growing organic industry and supporting job creation and business growth globally.

A report conducted by the international Economics of Land Degradation initiative states that the economic value of global land is undervalued and commonly determined by immediate agricultural or forestry market values.

There are several ways to combat land degradation, including reforestation, sustainable agriculture and establishing alternative non-agricultural livelihoods (i.e. eco-tourism). 

The report suggests that if agricultural land productivity remains at its current levels, an estimated 6 million hectares of land (roughly the area of Norway) would need to be converted to agricultural production every year until at least 2030 to satisfy growing demand.

GEAPS foundation receives USD$500,000 from CHS foundation

The GEAPS Foundation is pleased to announce it is one of five organisations selected by the CHS Foundation to receive funding through CHS Inc.’s new national agricultural safety initiative.
 
The CHS Foundation’s USD$500,000 contribution to the GEAPS Foundation’s Professional Development Programs Endowment Fund represents the largest contribution to the fund to date. The GEAPS Foundation was established by the Grain Elevator and Processing Society (GEAPS) in 2011 as a mechanism to secure a stable and predictable funding stream to support GEAPS’ training for grain and processing industry operations professionals.

“CHS’s generous contribution supports the development of courses for the GEAPS/Kansas State University (K-State) Distance Education Program. It also demonstrates the vital role for industry businesses in helping to fund development of courses needed to train the next generation of grain industry operations professionals to safely and sustainably feed the world,” said Mark Fedje, GEAPS Foundation board chair, and terminal elevator maintenance team leader, General Mills.

The GEAPS/K-State Distance Education Program provides online, peer-reviewed CEU courses taught by grain industry leaders in operations safety and grain quality management, facility design, materials handling and equipment maintenance. The courses help strengthen the skills of today’s workforce and grow the knowledge of tomorrow’s grain industry professionals. In 2012, the industry’s first-ever credentialing program, offering the Credential in grain operations management (CGOM), was added.

“CHS and the CHS Foundation recognise that meeting the food needs of a growing population requires significant enhancements in our production systems. And, the health and safety of the workforce will be a key component. The GEAPS/K-State Distance Education Program is well suited to help meet that need,” said William Nelson, CHS vice president, corporate citizenship and president, CHS Foundation.

“CHS’s leadership in supporting continued expansion of top quality education programs will help GEAPS and K-State develop the courses needed for grain industry workers to stay current with state-of the-art methodology to safely handle, store and process grain in order to maximize its quality and availability for food products,” said Bill Lyster, GEAPS International board chair and special projects manager, Ag Partners.

The GEAPS Foundation is working to raise USD$4 million over five years to support the GEAPS/K-State Distance Education Program. All money raised will go the Foundation’s Professional Development Programs Endowment Fund, which will help fund the enhancement and expansion of the GEAPS/K-State course offerings.

CBH celebrates machinery milestone, leading to a future of automation

The CBH Group recently announced the completion of its 500th portable conveyor belt, known as a grain stacker.

Matthew Newton, CBH country maintenance & engineering manager, says it’s an important milestone that is likely to lead to further improvements at receival sites.

“The 500th stacker is the first to be automated, giving the operator the ability to fully operate the stacker from a distance,” said Newton. “Although this innovation is in its earliest stages, it is our goal that it will enable CBH to receive grain to an open bulk head without the assistance of an operator in the field, improve the level of safety and be energy efficient.”

The CBH Group is the first Australian company to design and produce a grain stackers; the latest model is the first to be automated. This development has been 30 years in the making. The first prototype stacker was built in 1983.

“It was nicknamed Dino the Dinosaur by the operators on site, this was due the size of the stacker and how cumbersome it was to move around. The stacker was capable of 200 tph,” added Newton.

“This latest stacker weighs 18.8 tonne, has a boom length of 23 m and extends to a height of 9m and it has the capacity to run at 500tph.”

“We’re proud of this innovation and it’s important for CBH to strive for continuous improvements to meet current and future operational requirements, improve safety standards and manage its own energy usage.”

Why is so little soy produced 'responsibly'?

Only 3 percent or less of the world’s soy supply is currently certified under one of the standards designed to promote more responsible production, according to a new paper published today by KPMG International – A Roadmap to Responsible Soy: approaches to increase certification and reduce risk.

This means that soy lags far behind other commodities where levels of certified production are much higher. For example, 50 percent of non-farmed whitefish is now certified, 16 percent of coffee and 14 percent of global palm oil production.

The KPMG paper is published in collaboration with the Sustainable Trade Initiative (IDH), WWF, FMO (the Netherlands Development Finance Company) and the International Finance Corporation (IFC). It is timed to coincide with the 8th International Conference on Responsible Soy (RT8) taking place in Beijing on May 28-29, 2013.

A Roadmap to Responsible Soy, part of KPMG’s Sustainable Insight series, identifies the barriers preventing growth in certified responsible soy production and presents an action plan to overcome them. The four key barriers are:

  • Weak market demand for certified soy
  • Variable availability of certified soy
  • Fragmentation of the certification landscape
  • The cost of certification for soy farmers.

Co-author of the paper, Jerwin Tholen of KPMG in the Netherlands, said, “Soy production is soaring driven by population growth and increasing wealth in the developing world. But as production grows so do the industry’s environmental and social impacts. The very low level of certified soy in the supply chain at the moment presents a risk to large-scale users of soy especially food producers and retailers. Global NGO and activist campaigns have targeted palm oil in recent years, but attention is also being paid to soy.

“Addressing the barriers to responsible soy production is not a job for soy producers alone. It needs a collaborative approach across the supply chain from producers and end-users, traders and processors, investors and certification bodies, and governments and consumers.”

Key actions recommended in the paper include:
  • Increased commitment to certification by end users of soy including major food and retail brands
  • Greater collaboration between the many and various certification schemes to align their assessment criteria and processes, and improve mutual recognition
  • Financial support from soy processors to assist farmers in funding the up-front costs of certification
  • Greater demand from banks for certification as a pre-condition to providing finance to companies in the soy supply chain
  • More financial incentives for certification to be provided by governments, for example through their tax systems
Analysis by KPMG has shown that there is a convincing business case for many soy farmers in the key producer countries of Argentina and Brazil to invest in certifying their production.

The KPMG study, commissioned by IDH and co-funded by WWF, FMO and IFC, found that the average payback period for soy producers’ investment in certification is only 3 years and, for larger, better prepared farmers, can be as little as 1 year.

Says Jerwin Tholen of KPMG said, “Given that end-user companies such as manufacturers of food, animal feed and biofuel, arguably face the greatest risks from slow progress towards certification, KPMG recommends that these companies should evaluate the issues and potential impacts, and develop a response strategy and plan of action.”

A roadmap to responsible soy also includes a framework of actions to assist companies in developing an effective response strategy.

26/09/2013: Cutting emissions in the livestock sector; Norway invests in crop diversity; South Korea set to double farm exports

According to a new study carried out by the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO), greenhouse gas emissions produced by the livestock sector could be cut by as much as 30 percent through a wider use of existing technologies and practices.
 
To date, the report represents the most comprehensive estimate of livestock's contribution to global warming.
Read the full report here

The Norway government has pledged USD$23.7 million in a bid to conserve and manage the world's most important food crops, focusing on the critical need for crop diversity.

"In just ten years we will have a billion more people at the global dinner table, but during that same time we could see climate change diminish rice production by ten percent with a one degree increase in temperature," said Marie Haga, executive director, Global Crop Diversity Trust.

The agriculture ministry recently announced South Korea's plans to double its outbound shipments of farm and fisheries products to US$16 billion in just five years.

During a government meeting chaired by Park Geun-hye, president of the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, explained that South Korea aims to invest nearly 2 trillion won (USD$1.86 billion) by 2017 to develop new products and farming technologies.

EU approves BIOMIN mycotoxin line

The EU Standing Committee on the Food Chain and Animal Health (SCFCAH) has authorized two BIOMIN products as “substances for reduction of the contamination of feed by mycotoxins”. 

Two products from the well-established Mycofix® product line of BIOMIN, Mycofix® Secure (bentonite/dioctahedral montmorillonite) and Biomin® BBSH 797 (Gen. nov. sp. nov., formerly Eubacterium), are slated to become the first-ever products authorized by the EU as substances with proven mycotoxin counteracting properties. 

Following the positive SCFCAH votes, the publication of the respective EU regulations would be the next and final stage towards confirming the scientific efficacy of Mycofix® Secure and Biomin® BBSH 797 as mycotoxin-deactivating products.

Biomin® BBSH 797 is the first-ever product to receive this positive vote, thereby affirming its capability in the biodegradation of trichothecenes. The patented active bacterium in Biomin® BBSH 797 modifies the structure of these mycotoxins, a biotransformation process that renders trichothecenes such as deoxynivalenol (DON) harmless. This makes Biomin® BBSH 797 a valuable feed additive for pigs, considered the species most susceptible to in-feed DON contamination. 

Mycofix® Secure is a bentonite (dioctahedral montmorillonite) that fulfills the strict requirements on aflatoxin-binding capability according to the European Union Reference Laboratory (EURL). In cooperation with the EURL, BIOMIN developed an analytical method to characterize the AfB1-binding capacity of bentonites which has now become a crucial part of the authorization process for aflatoxin binders. These efforts spearheaded by BIOMIN have paved the way for legalizing “aflatoxin-binding” as an official claim. 

The process towards the authorization of Mycofix® Secure and Biomin® BBSH 797 in the EU began when, on the initiative of BIOMIN, the EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures, or FEFANA, established the Task Force Mycotoxins in 2005. In 2009, the Task Force succeeded in opening a new functional group for mycotoxin counteracting products, signifying a landmark development in the official approval of mycotoxin deactivating products within the EU. This led subsequently to the publication of stringent European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) guidance for anti-mycotoxin product registration—including proofs for mycotoxin and species specificity, efficacy and safety—which have generally deterred the industry from submitting dossiers for EU authorization of anti-mycotoxin feed additives. 

In 2010, BIOMIN, however, became the first feed additive company to submit a dossier to legalize the claim of 'aflatoxin-binding' properties (Mycofix® Secure). This was followed in 2012 with a dossier for the “biodegradation of trichothecenes” (Biomin® BBSH 797) for EU approval. After a thorough scientific evaluation process, BIOMIN became the first feed additive company to obtain positive opinions from EFSA on these technological feed additives capable of reducing the negative impacts of mycotoxins in animals.

25/09/13: Bulk handlers benefit from Australian deregulation; safety in silos message; minimising land loss

Bulk grain handlers with port facilities dominate the Australian export market, reports ABC Rural.

Grain industry consultant, Simon McNair calculates that grain handlers who own terminals have increased their market share from just over 40 percent, to more than 60 percent of the export market since deregulation in 2009.

Pre-deregulation there were concerns that bulk handlers would get a regional monopoly similar to that of the Australian Wheat Board (AWB), Judging by McNair's figures, it seems that these fears have come to fruition.

However, the government is trying to tackle this issue. Following the recent election, the new Abbott government will progress with its yet-to-be completed mandatory code of conduct for port access. This would allow greater access arrangements to terminals for third parties, regardless of who owns the port terminal.

Did you know you can die in a grain bin in 60 seconds?

With the harvest season in full swing across much of the north hemisphere, it is worth refreshing your memory on the unique dangers of grain storage.

In the past 50 years, more than 900 cases of grain engulfment have been reported with a fatality rate of 62 percent, according to  Purdue University, Indiana, USA. more recently, in 2010, at least 26 US workers were killed in grain engulfments − the highest number on record.

This blog post from the U.S. Department of Labor looks at what safety measures should be considered when working in grain silos. The article includes information on the six major hazards: engulfment, falls, auger entanglement, 'struck by', combustible dust explosions and electrocution hazards.

Here's another scary statistic for you:

"Every year we lose an area of land with the potential to produce 20 million tons of grain," Michael Mack, CEO, Syngenta.

This is obviously worrying news for everyone, not just the grain industry. However, the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), in partnership with the World Business Council for Sustainable Development and Syngenta, is doing something about it. 

The organisation has launched the Soil Leadership Academy which aims to fill the gap in capacity building opportunities for policy makers to address land management issues, through distilling and sharing the latest science, knowledge and expertise in soil conservation and sustainable practice.

Key objectives will be to:
  • Develop an efficient, community, business and land user friendly decision making environment to prevent and reverse land degradation and desertification, to support soil conservation and facilitate greening of arid, semi-arid and dry-sub-humid regions of the world.
  • Establish a network of business and business representative bodies/organizations for regular engagement with the UNCCD providing business solutions and inputs on sustainable land management to the convention and its parties in order to contribute towards building a land-degradation neutral world.
“The Academy will serve as a source of state-of-the-art information related to soil conservation and land-management. It should help bridge the gap between science and policy and to build the capacity of those who manage the land to access knowledge,” said Luc Gnacadja, executive secretary, UNCCD.
