"We don't know what's going on in the system here," said Prima advisor Derek Sliworsky in Winnipeg, who said that while not all Canadian wheat shipments suffer from poor quality, "we don't have these problems from other origins. Prima buys between 500,000 and 1 million tonnes of Canadian wheat a year to produce flour at its mills in Singapore, Sri Lanka and China.

Problems have grown since 2012, when Ottawa stripped the Canadian Wheat Board of its centralized role in marketing wheat, said Sliworsky, who used to work for the wheat board. The following year, Ottawa cut one-third of the workforce of the Canadian Grain Commission, the agency responsible for quality.

Derek Sliworsky of Prima Group, a Singaporean milling and processing company, recently urged the Canadian grain trade to look into why some wacky things are happening with export shipments, considering that Canada has always been seen as a high quality supplier.

Some players in the Canadian grain trade were offended that Sliworsky, who grew up on a Manitoba farm and formerly represented CWB in Japan, spoke his concerns out loud in a public gathering during the Cereals North America conference.
However, some farmer representatives with whom I've spoken have praised his willingness to give the Canadian grain trade, of which he's a proud proponent, a wake-up call regarding something he sees as serious.
