Maize millers maintain close relationships with the maize producers
As the representative organisation for the European dry maize milling sector, Euromaisiers strongly believes that it is crucial to engage in long-term partnerships with the community producing the maize that millers process into food and feed ingredients.
Maize-milling activity helps ensure a fair standard of living for the maize farming community in Europe and worldwide. European maize is predominantly grown in France, Italy and Spain followed by Hungary, Romania and Poland, although maize may also be sourced outside Europe.
Together with farmers, we seek the highest quality standards for maize, both from an agronomical and food safety perspective. This partnership starts in the fields, where maize millers and farmers combine their knowledge to advance the best practices in maize growing. This includes maize hybrids that meet special production needs, taking into account the environment and the wide range of farmland characteristics, such as soil and climate. The milling industry is therefore able to source high-quality, safe and sustainable maize throughout the supply chain, from farm to fork.
