UK miller hikes flour prices as wheat costs soar
LONDON ,Soaring wheat prices in heat-battered Europe have forced Britain's biggest flour miller Rank Hovis to hike the cost of its flour products by about 15 percent - or 35 pounds ($56.34) a tonne, the miller said on Tuesday.
Hovis' Wheat Director Peter Jones said the price increases, which will be phased in over the next few weeks, were necessary because wheat buying accounts for around 70 percent of the company's costs.
"We can't cope with the price rises we've seen in recent weeks - we simply have got to pass them on to our customers," Jones told Reuters.
Wheat prices across Europe have soared over the last two months, with searing temperatures and drought-like conditions cutting output in most key grain producing countries, particularly France.
Tightening supplies in eastern and central Europe, where output has also been hit by a series of weather-related problems, have also stoked concerns about overall supplies.
November LIFFE wheat futures in London rallied to a life-of-contract high of 83 pounds a tonne on Monday as the market took its lead from rising maize and milling wheat prices on the Euronext wheat exchange in Paris.
