Flour mills shut down

National Bakers Association executive member David Govere said the wheat shortage had grounded the flour making industry and warned Zimbabwe could run out of bread in the coming weeks. Bread, which sells for about Z$28 000 or slightly above US$1 a standard loaf, was already in short supply in the country. Govere said: “What I knew was that only National Foods was left with a substantial tonnage of wheat and they were also very few stocks at Victoria Foods. As for Blue Ribbons, they have not milled anything for the past two weeks.”
