Angola: New Wheat Mills Expand Opportunities for US Wheat Exports to Angola
Angola’s wheat milling capacity has increased to achieve self-sufficiency with five wheat mills now operating in the country, with milling capacity of up to 1 million metric tons of wheat per year. Market price is a major challenge to increasing U.S. wheat exports to Angola. However, the expanded milling capacity and demand could help create an opportunity for American wheat exports to Angola as the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict has created supply chain disruptions. Russia and Ukraine accounted for about 30 percent of Angola’s wheat imports in 2021.
