BoMill publishes interim report for the third quarter 2021
BoMill AB (”BoMill” or the “Company”) hereby publishes the interim report for the third quarter and the first nine months of 2021. The interim report is available as an attached file to this release and on BoMill’s website. Below is a summary of the report.
CEO Andreas Jeppsson comments:
“In several regions, this year’s climate conditions during growing and harvesting seasons have been problematic, producing variable quality and lower yield. This is leading, today and in the future, to a potential shortage of supply for certain quality grades, which is already reflected on the global price of crops such as barley, durum and wheat. These conditions emphasize the need to optimize the use of our resources as efficiently as possible to mitigate increasing variation of quality and potential deficit while reducing our environmental impact. BoMill’s revolutionary grain sorting technology has the potential to make such a difference, helping the global grain and food industry in responding to those challenges through sustainable and efficient production.”
