THE INDEPENDENT: UNBS to start enforcing maize grain and flour standards

The Uganda National Bureau of Standards has released standards for the maize industry targeting millers and parkers, and warned processors who have no certification to cease operations. Uganda produces an estimated 2.5 million tons of maize, with exports worth between USD 120 and 150 million annually, mainly from the regional market.  This makes maize the biggest food crop Uganda produces in terms of value, both for the local and export markets. https://www.independent.co.ug/unbs-to-start-enforcing-maize-grain-and-flour-standards/
