The Grain Chain Food Security and Managing Wheat Imports in Arab Countries

Arab countries face a number of food security risks due to their high dependence on wheat imports. This study
explores ways in which countries can mitigate these risks. The authors evaluate the wheatimport supply chain (WISC) from the unloading port to bulk storage at the flour mill, before the wheat is milled into flour. This study is unique in
that it takes a holistic view of the supply chain by examining how strategic storage, logistics improvements, and procurement strategies can all be used to improve food security.
