Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) received a consignment of 30 000 tonnes of wheat after the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) paid the balance owed to Holbud’s Lithuanian.
Addressing journalists yesterday at Olivine Plant in Willowvale, GMAZ chairman, Mr Tafadzwa Musarara said they expect millers that had shutdown to resume production on Wednesday.Said Musarara:
We expect that by Wednesday next week, the millers that had shut down will re-open and start producing. We have listed the top nine millers to be prioritised in terms of wheat flour supplies who account for the 92 percent supplies of the market.
Musarara said they are having problems with the National Railways of Zimbabwe (NRZ) which is transporting the wheat. He said there should be a six months plan in place since it takes a long period for the ship to load and come.
