South Africa - Withdrawal of millers from chamber

Two of South Africa’s milling giants,Pioneer Foods and Premier Foods, as well as Pride Milling and Godrich Flour Mills, have quit their membership of the National Chamber of Milling and are no longer required to submit sales information to the chamber.The move has caused alarm about the chamber’s ability to gather crucial industry information. This information is used by millers, farmers, the Reserve Bank and the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (DAFF). A lack of information will make it difficult to track the staple food trends and to calculate statistics like the gross domestic product (GDP).
