CUTS Prods Fra to Help Stablise Mealie-Meal Prices

Times of Zambia, August 27, 2019

THE Consumer Unity Trust Society (CUTS) has appealed to the Government to consider offloading part of the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) maize stocks as a short term measure to help stabilise mealie meal prices.

CUTS centre coordinator Chenai Mukumba said yesterday that supplying millers with the subsidised FRA grain would provide a viable short term solution to the rising mealie meal prices.

“Government should continue with initiatives and ensure that subsidised maize reaches all milling companies, including small millers,” Ms Mukumba said.
