The Grain Millers’ Association of Zimbabwe (GMAZ) yesterday said government had increased maize and wheat prices to millers by 86% and 38% respectively .

In a statement, GMAZ said maize grain is now at ZW$1 300 per tonne from ZW$700 per tonne with wheat going up from ZW$1 600 per tonne to ZW$2 200 per tonne.

“In as much as we (millers) have no problem with these price increases, we, however, foresee maize-meal and flour-related products going up in the near future as a result of these
margins,” GMAZ media and public relations manager Garikai Chaunza.

Prices of basic commodities have been going up rapidly as the local currency continues to lose value.

    ZANUPF have never in their 40 years of running ZW understood basic economics & we see this even today in their knee jerk reactions to all products.
    If the RTGS dollar loses well over 90 per cent of its value vs the USD in under 6 months prices will magnify by ten times – this is only the beginning comrades -lots more increases on the way
