The Grain Millers’ Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) chairman Tafadzwa Musarara has said that wheat shipments are expected to start coming into the country from Monday. This comes at a time when the millers have warned of imminent bread shortages following a drastic decrease in the country’s wheat levels. Bread production has been lower in the last few days and Bakers Inn has advised customers that the price of bread is going up by 10 percent starting on Saturday (tomorrow). Addressing the media on Thursday, Musarara said,

Already, GMAZ had successfully negotiated for the movement of 30 000 tonnes of wheat to Beira on a pre-payment arrangement. The final payment on this shipment will be paid tomorrow (today) by the Reserve Bank and the shipment of wheat to Zimbabwe will commence immediately thereafter both by rail and road. We aim to deploy 100 trucks to complement rail.
