Long Description:
The Barbados Grain Elevator are near the cruise ship ports and Barbados Coast guard Station.

World Grain last presented information on Caribbean flour milling in 1992. In the past four years, a number of mills have modernized facilities and/or increased capacity to become more efficient and competitive. A single mill often provides flour for an entire island, and some also export flour to neighboring islands. Indeed, the opening of the flour market to competition from within the Organization of East Caribbean States encouraged some millers to achieve greater efficiencies.

Caribbean nations produce virtually no wheat, relying instead on imports from the U.S., Canada and Europe. Although several flour mills are owned in whole or in part by governments, the private sector operates the majority.

Note: Population, wheat import and flour production figures are for 1995 unless otherwise indicated.
