Abstract This report describes the supply chains and special characteristics of plant-based primary food processors; producers of (wheat) flour, starches, vegetable oils and fats, sugar, and cocoa. The production value, direct employment in the industry, and indirect employment in farming were calculated. The significance of the plant-based primary food processing industry in terms of production value and share in the total food processing industry in the EU was estimated, and threats and opportunities were identified on the basis of desk research and interviews with PFP member organisations and companies.
