Japan’s ministry of agriculture has sent out a distress signal for more wheat. Why? Because Japan imports up to 90 percent of its wheat from the U.S., Canada, and Australia and one upcoming shipment has been disapproved by the country’s ministry of agriculture.
So, according to Bloomberg, Asia’s second-largest importer of wheat badly needs an additional shipment of 2,000 metric tons … or else it risks a shortage of fudgy chocolate brownies, gourmet cookies, and other desserts that rely on imported wheat.
“We have to hedge the risk that Japanese flour millers will face a supply shortage because of the prolonged suspension of imports,” Hiromi Iwahama, the ministry of agriculture director of grain trading, told Bloomberg.
A shortage of desserts? That’s no way to spend a summer.
