Availability Of Wheat Set To Improve : GMAZ Chairman4 years ago
The availability of wheat is expected to improve in the coming weeks according to Grain Millers Association Of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) chairman Tafadzwa Musarara. He said the Association is aiming at importing 60 000 tonnes of wheat in the next two months. There have been delays in the transportation of wheat from Beira as the National Railways Of Zimbabwe (NRZ) has insufficient wagons for the task. As a result, GMAZ has hired haulage trucks to complement the efforts being made by the NRZ. Musarara said
We had payment delays to have [the] wheat come to Zimbabwe. Some of the wheat has been held in Beira, but the payment has been done. We used to have eight suppliers of wheat, but now we are working with one supplier, who demands payment up front. In light of the challenge, we have now decided to make use of road transport since NRZ has been struggling to transport the wheat.
