Govt, input suppliers’ meet flops

Staff Writer

GOVERNMENT has failed to meet seed and fertiliser manufacturers to deliberate the issue of price controls.


Minister of

Industry and International Trade Samuel Mumbengegwi was supposed to meet Seed Co and ZFC Ltd this week.


Mumbengegwi said he did not meet the seed houses because he was in Mutare.


He refused to comment further on the issue.


Fertiliser and seed manufacturing firms are facing viability problems as government is imposing prices on their products.


Fertiliser manufacturer, ZFC Ltd said it did not perform to its best in the six months ended June 30.


Executive director Shingai Mutasa said ZFC was facing viability problems because government was controlling their product prices.
