Grain is one of the most strategic products of today because it constitutes the grist of many foodstuffs and has a very critical place in feeding the world. Many countries are conducting R&D studies towards increasing the efficiency in grains in order to guarantee food safety. FAO has updated its forecast for worldwide cereal production in 2017 now stands at 2 billion 640 million tons. This figure is a world record.  Along with the production, grain trade is also in an increasing trend. According to International Grains Council (IGC), grain trade will make an unprecedented peak in 2017/18 year with a volume of 361 million tons. This increasing strategic value and corresponding production figures increase the importance of the milling sector which constitutes a critical chain for grain to be processed until it comes to our tables as food.
