Summary

Provides information on alternative sales and risk management strategies that should enable producers to see opportunities in entering into the spelt market.


EPrint Type:Practice tool
What problem does the tool address?:While market interest for spelt has been increasing over the last few years, challenges in meeting food grade, or a consistent and growing supply to keep up with demand is a large risk for cereal producers; as a result, the risks of diversifying into spelt are often considered greater than the potential returns for farmers.
What solution does the tool offer?:Adapting or innovating sales arrangements have proved successful in finding a route to market for other niche cereals that would not have been considered viable in conventional circumstances; these are transferable to the spelt market also.
