dc.description.abstractThe annual consumption of wheat in Sub-Saharan Africa is following an upward trend. Compared to the demographic increase of the African population that registered a + 32% since 2007, in the same time span the continent’s wheat imports increased by 68%, to reach 47 million tons in 2019. This is due to the low price of bread on the market combined with the facility of its consumption. Along the same trend, durum wheat foods in the form of pasta, couscous, and burghul (broken grains) has also been rising steadily. On the other hand, very few African countries produce this crop in good quantity, so most of its consumption is done by paying for expensive international imports.en_US
