Production of bread is cut back

September 06, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Zimbabwe's main bakery said bread shortages would worsen because it had to close one of its largest outlets because of a lack of wheat.

Lobels Bread had only a two-day supply of wheat and has cut daily production to 40,000 loaves from 200,000, said Lemmy Chikomo, a company official.

The World Food Program's Zimbabwe representative, Kevin Farrell, said the United Nations agency was seeking an additional $100 million to deliver grain. Farrell said the situation was getting "acutely serious."
