Addressing journalists in Harare yesterday, Grain Millers’ Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) chairman, Tafadzwa Musarara said the association will be sending a 12-member delegation to Canada to sign a 200 000-tonne wheat deal amid reports the country was left with wheat reserves for 90 days.
Musarara said the delegation will travel from May 12 to May 22 and will meet Canadian government officials, wheat farmers and bakers. Said Musarara:
We are sitting on a 90 days’ supply and that means the imports will be coming in before we run out. There will be a smooth changeover from local to foreign wheat. Following the government’s policy of Zimbabwe is open for business, I am pleased to advise that we are currently working with the Canadian Embassy, which is in the world’s top five of wheat producers.
