The Grain Marketing Board (GMB) will next month begin installing maize-milling plants across the country to increase the availability of its Silo brand of mealie-meal.
He said one of the plants will be installed at Aspindale Depot in Harare by the end of this year and another at Khulumani Depot in Bulawayo.
“Since we are experiencing drought, the milling plants will ensure mealie-meal reaches the remote and affected areas because the GMB is visible countrywide,” he said.
Apart from grain procurement, the GMB also produces Silo products such as mealie-meal and rice as part of efforts to boost income.
