4.6 Djibouti Storage and Milling Company Contact List

Being a non-food (cereals grain) producer country, economic actors never invest in milling facilities. All over the country, only one milling machine is located inside the port of Djibouti. Furthermore, as the entrance in the port of Djibouti is open to limited users, this facility is not used by common individuals.
As already mentioned, Djibouti imports most of its food commodities for local consumption, as a result, cereals are being imported in break bulk as flour instead of grain in bulk.

Additional Notes

As the milling facility is located in the port, no limitation is applicable as result of the fact that the port is largely accessible by all type of trucks to carry out cargoes from ships.
