The General Manager of Alapros of Turkey talked to Roger Gilbert of Milling and Grain at the recent IDMA-Victam EMEA exposition in Istanbul, Turkey - held between March 10-12, 2022 - about the impact the war between Russia and Ukraine is having on the flour milling industry. He says the situation developing in the Ukraine is showing us how important the milling industry is to a country's stability. He says it is the number one priority of any country and is more important than before defence consideration and equal to health. A flour mill built by his company is operating 24 hours a day in Ukraine - with lights out at night to avoid being targeted - to deliver flour to local citizens. Flour milling must continue he says.
