FRA URGED TO GIVE ITS POSITION ON MAIZE PROCUREMENT

The Centre for Trade Policy and Development (CTPD) has called on the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) to urgently give its full position on maize procurement in this marketing season.

We have noted with concern that hundreds of bags of maize belonging to small scale farmers are going to waste at some named Food Reserve Agency (FRA) depot in various districts due to lack of proper warhorses or sheds.

    The food Reserve Agency should serious give their stance on the purchase of maize bags from our local farmers because the bags are serious going to waste…this I have seen and witnessed in my village kasempa district.
