Agriculture remains one of most dangerous industries
Farmers and crofters have been urged to be more vigilant after figures revealed five people were killed on Scottish farms in just 12 months.
Provisional figures from the Health and Safety Executive reveal that in 2016/17 agriculture had the highest rate of fatal injury in the UK, and that Scotland had the second highest market would help British agriculture, which typically produces a surplus of wheat with more than 80% of this currently exported to the EU.
At present, around 70% of Egypt’s wheat imports is sourced from Russia and other Black Sea countries such as Romania.
The remainder comes from France, Germany, Australia and the US.
AHDB export marketing executive Dorit Cohen said: “UK wheat is not widely known in the Egyptian market. Educating Egyptian millers and bakers on how to use UK flour to obtain the best results for their products will enable them to gain the confidence required and facilitate trade with the UK.”
