A severe bread crisis in Kassala due to the closure of the ports


Kassala: Saif al-Din Adam Haroun

All subsidized bread bakeries closed their doors to the citizens of Kassala State for the third day in a row, leaving no choice but expensive commercial bread after the strategic stocks of subsidized flour ran out, and the bread crisis reappeared strongly.

. Some bakery owners attributed the lack of flour to the closure of the port and the failure of the mill entrusted with providing subsidized flour to the state after the decision of the Ministry of Industry to localize flour mills to reduce costs, which was evident in the reduction of the price of a piece of bread to five pounds.

One of the bakery owners says that the poor production of Kassala Mill and its failure to achieve the connection clearly contributed to the erosion of the quantities of the strategic stock, and attributed this to the low capabilities of the mill in conjunction with the limited storage space.

Many complained about the low percentage of the product compared to the production of the previous company, and the low-income people paid the bill for commercial bread with a discount from their other needs, at a time when some went to buy corn and flour despite the crazy increase, and the price of a kilo of flour reached (400) pounds, and parents of students are facing difficulties in providing Bread for breakfast despite the difficulties of obtaining commercial bread. The city’s bakery outlets witnessed a remarkable accumulation of citizens.
