Grain Millers’ Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) has appealed to the Government to cancel Lobels Bread’s import licence.
Lobels is being accused of sabotaging local millers through wheat importation despite the availability of the product locally. Last week, the National Bakers Association of Zimbabwe (NBAZ) through its president, Mr Givemore Mesoemvura, also accused millers of increasing the price of flour from $27 to $32 for a 50 kilogramme bag.
However, GMAZ chairman Mr Tafadzwa Musarara dismissed the accusations and said:
I understand these falsehoods are being peddled by Lobels. For your information, we reported Lobels to the Vice President (Emmerson Mnangagwa) so that their importation privilege is reversed.
Lobels responded and said that GMAZ was lying as the bread manufacturer uses 95% of local flour.
