RBZ: Bakers Will Review The Price Of Bread Downwards

RBZ: Bakers Will Review The Price Of Bread Downwards

The Governor of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ), Dr John Mangudya has said the central bank expects bakers to review the prices of bread downwards following a recent meeting. Prices of bread have been going up recently with bakers citing depletion of wheat reserves in the country and an increase in prices of wheat imported. Some shops have been selling bread at US$1.30. Pindula News presents a statement issued by Mangudya this Monday:


The Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (the Bank) wishes to advise the public that it held a consultative meeting with the National Bakers Association of Zimbabwe (the Bakers Association) on 17 June 2022 and deliberated on the cost build-up in the bread value chain.

Taking into account the submissions by the Bakers Association and the need to stabilise the price of bread, the Bank agreed with the Bakers Association that its members would access their full requirements of foreign exchange through the weekly foreign exchange auctions for importation of inputs and procurement of fuel for the distribution of bread across the country.

In view of the positive engagement with the Bakers Association, it is expected that members of the Bakers Association will review the price of bread downwards. Going forward, the price of bread will be adjusted on account of economic fundamentals that include global price trends of inputs and the movement of the foreign currency exchange rate.

John P Mangudya Governor 20 June 2022

I commend the Reserve bank governor for reducing the price of bread. I call upon Panonetsa to consider reducing the prices of food items popular with kids, such as zapnacks, mahewu (honeypot), maputi (especially maZupco) and many others. I can no longer afford to buy these things for my 13 children. Please hear me Mr Governor, Sir !

I commend the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe for trying to help to lower down prices of food staffs by allocating foreign currency to manufacturers at its auction floors. What it must now do is to follow up to see and confirm that producers do not cheat claiming that they are getting their foreign currency from the blackmarket.
