The company’s chief executive officer, Jeremy Brooke said they were delighted to be back and to be creating jobs.
The plant in Mutare will complement operations at the Harare and Bulawayo plants to ensure nationwide availability of their products.
Brooke said: “We have secured maize from Mozambique that will be milled in Mutare to help ensure there is adequate roller meal and pearlenta (mealie meal) between now and the harvesting of locally produced maize.”
He said Zambia had resumed maize sales to Zimbabwe, which would also help ensure there was adequate food prior to the harvest.
He emphasised that it was crucial for every person who could do so to plant maize.
“Every available square inch of the country should be used for planting so that we can guarantee our own food security as a nation and the food security of our own people,” he said.
“We are grateful to our transporters, particularly the National Railways of Zimbabwe, for their help in moving grain around the country,” he added.Post published in: News
