The Grandes Moagens de Angola (GMA) company has invested over 100 million US dollars on the implementation of a transformation plant to produce flour from wheat and animal feed from bran, according to César Rasgado, Business Administrator of the institution, quoted by the newspaper O País.

According to César Rasgado, the mill will be developed in Luanda and will have the capacity to produce 1,2 tons of cereal per day, for the production of wheat based flour and bran to be used for animal feed.

The administrator of GMA also revealed that the investment evaluated in 101 million US dollars has been approved by the Council of Ministers on June 26th, 2016 and forecasts a reduction of 60% in the importation of wheat flour for the domestic market.

The investment is to be used in the implementation of the production plant, the acquisition of equipment, machinery and the recruitment of staff. The expected launch for the beginning of production is the first quarter of 2017.

According to César Rasgado, the monthly production of over 36 thousand tons of flour is destined for the domestic market with the objective of reducing importation of these products from foreign markets.

“Once implemented, our production will be sufficient to cover our requirements of domestic demand, currently between 60 and 70 percent and make the most of the subproduct, bran, for the production of animal feed”, the administrator explained.

Regarding the bran, the representative for Grandes Moagens de Angola stated that half of the production is for export and aimed at the the acquisition of foreign currency due to the lower demand currently felt at a domestic level.

“Bran demand does not currently count much for local consumption, with 50 to 60 percent destined for export, in turn, balancing out the scale regarding payments”, César Rasgado added.

Data from the National Council for Shippers of Angola reveals that in 2015 Angola spent over 600 million USD importing wheat flour.”
