UK import parities

Updated weekly

This survey offers an indicative view of the competitiveness of UK grain in the global market, as well as the value of imported grains into UK homes. 

Please note we are currently experiencing challenges sourcing prices to calculate the cost of imported German milling wheat for this survey. We are working on a solution but are temporarily pausing this survey until we can resume publishing the values.
