The Grain Millers Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) has announced that the country is sitting on a 90 day wheat supply before the next harvest in October.

 

Speaking at a news briefing this Thursday (today) in the capital, GMAZ chairman Mr Tafadzwa Musarara said the association has managed to source 200 000 metric tonnes of wheat from Canada to supplement the depleting stocks.

Responding to concerns of importing genetically modified wheat and fears of increasing the import deal, Mr Musarara revealed GMAZ is dealing directly with wheat producers from Canada alerting on the country’s specific needs as all African countries are net wheat importers.

GMAZ will work with foreign companies that have local payment obligations to offset the payment of wheat so as not to further strain the foreign currency reserves.
