Consistency is what I think about when it comes to milling wheat. As a miller, it is important that I understand the quality of the new wheat crop and how the flour is going to perform. These webinars provide me with information on what I can expect with the new crop.

Are the events recorded?

Yes. All our sessions are recorded and will be available to watch on-demand approximately 24-48 hours after the event. Recordings will be available for one year.

Will there be interpreters/translators?

Live translations will be available depending on the webinar that you have registered for. Please visit the webinar that you are interested in attending to learn more.

Can I get the data / report before the webinar?

Yes, data will be available on November 15

Can I attend any 2021 New Wheat Crop Webinar?

Do I need to be a customer to attend?

Webinars are intended for Canadian wheat customers and partners. Our goal is to ensure our customers and partners learn about the quality and availability of the new crop to help them make informed business decisions.

Is the content covered in the same way for each webinar?

Each webinar has specific needs so there are slight variations. There are also different languages interpreted at each webinar.

Can I request a grain sample?

Canadian Cereals does not directly market grain, and as such we cannot facilitate samples. We encourage prospective buyers to connect with leading Canadian grain handlers for any inquiries regarding product availability, quality, and pricing. These companies include: Cargill, G3, Richardson, Parrish & Heimbecker and Viterra.

What happens if multiple members of my company want to book one-on-one consultations? Can I book multiple consultations?

If multiple requests from one company are received, an initial, single session will be organized for the company to answer all questions. Follow-up sessions can be arranged.

Can I book a one-on-one consultation before the webinar?

Please reach out to Cereals Canada to book one-on-one consultations at any time of year. We are here to help you the customer with what you need to know.

Do I need to register to access a recording?

No. You can view recordings from any webinar on-demand after the event has ended.

Why do I need to register?

Registering for a webinar is the best way to get all the information you need about our 2021 Canadian wheat crop. Not only will you be able to learn about this year’s crop and performance, but you’ll also hear the latest news and analytics from cereals industry experts, who are available to answer all your questions.

How do I know if I’ve registered?

Our Process from Harvest to Webinar

Total Time

Approx. 7-8 Months

Sample Collection

02

Sample Collection

2-3 months

Cereals Canada works closely with nine grain companies with grain elevators across Western Canada (Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, and a small portion of British Columbia) to access wheat samples representative of export quality.

Grain companies receive wheat samples when growers deliver grain for shipment, or when they submit a representative wheat sample for grading. Grain companies are asked to submit their composites to Cereals Canada when samples represent at least 75 per cent of the harvested wheat class/grade in the region.

Classes of wheat analyzed: CWRS, CWAD & CPSR.

Milling

04

Milling

Up to 10 days

Each composite sample is thoroughly blended and a wheat sample is taken for wheat analysis. The remaining wheat is milled and the resulting flour and/or semolina is analyzed and tested in appropriate end-products (bread, noodles, pasta). Key milling characteristics include flour yield and ash content.

End-product Functionality

06

End-product Functionality

2-3 days

Key characteristics of end-product quality for bread includes loaf volume, crumb structure and colour. For noodles, we look at colour and colour retention, as well as cooked texture. For pasta, we consider the colour of the dried product and cooking quality (texture, cooking loss, etc.). The process includes preparation of scaling ingredients, actual processing and end-product quality assessment/scoring.

Harvesting

01

Harvesting

Up to 3 months

This is the final stage in the production process. Harvested crops are stored either on the farm in grain bins or delivered to grain elevators for shipment.

Harvesting time differs by province and region. More northern areas tend to be harvested later than more southern regions.

See harvest progress details
Grading and Blending

03

Grading and Blending

2-3 weeks

Samples from all grain companies are graded, then blended into composites that represent production from the West, East or Prairie regions of Western Canada. East and West regions are only for No. 1 CWRS, while Prairie regions are for CWAD, CPSR and No. 2 CWRS.

Flour/Semolina Analysis

05

Flour/Semolina Analysis

7-10 days

Flour/semolina is analyzed to determine its quality. Key areas of assessment for flour/semolina include protein content, gluten strength/rheological properties (protein quality) and colour.

While most quality analysis is done rather quickly, rheological and colour assessments are conducted 7 days after milling. Using a standard number of days after milling provides a basis for fairer comparisons.
