Mealie Meal Prices To Go Down

NINE millers have signed contracts with the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) and Grain Traders Association of Zambia (GTAZ) to receive maize under a tripartite agreement which is expected to result in a reduction in the wholesale and retail price of mealie-meal.
FRA public relations officer Daniel Msoka said in an interview yesterday that the millers that have so far signed the contracts are National Milling Corporation Limited, Superior Milling Company Limited and Nyimba Millers Limited.
Others are Chat Milling Company Limited, Ghirardi Milling, Jimbara Milling of Mansa district in Luapula, Delicious Milling and Kasama Milling.
Millers Association of Zambia (MAZ) president Andrew Chintala said his association, GTAZ and the Ministry of Agriculture will continue meeting to ensure that more millers are issued with contracts as soon as possible to ensure that the whole country is covered.
