The Grain Millers' Association of Zimbabwe yesterday said its members had increased the price of mealie meal as they were buying maize from private players at a high price after the Grain GMB stopped supplying grain.

Last month, GMB announced that it had stopped supplying maize to millers throughout the country saying it was "working on some logistics."

Recently GMB increased the price of mealie meal from $4,78 for a 10kg to $5,40 at its commercial outlets.

GMAZ deputy chairperson Thembinkosi Ndlovu said circumstances beyond their control had forced members of his organisation to hike the mealie meal price.

Ndlovu said they used to get maize from GMB at a price of $295 per tonne, but private players were now selling maize for between $320 and $420 per tonne.
